Which of my 3 video capture devices will work best with my PC?

Greetings all...

I'm interested in doing video transfer from VCR to PC and want to know which
of the 3 capture devices I have has the best chance of working with my
setup? I have 3 different symptoms happening with each.

My PC setup:
Ubuntu Karmic 9.10/2.6.31-20 generic
Socket 754 AMD Sempron 3000+ with passive cooling (non AMD64)
Biostar MB with Nforce3 250Gb chipset
NV31 GPU (Geforce FX5600 Ultra 128MB) using Nvidia 196 driver
34GB SCSI coupled to a Adaptec 19160 card
Soundblaster Audigy
dvd+-R floppy etc etc.

The devices in question:

USB: Dazzle Digital Photo Maker, using a USBvision driver recognized as a
Global Village GV-7000)

--This one recognizes and I can display video but if I try to record in
either xawtv or Kdenlive the program crashes.

PCI: Hauppauge WinTV model 38101
--When installed it shows /dev/video0 when I do an ls, but I don't get a
signal with either composite or coax input.   I tried following steps from
this link http://howtoubuntu.org/?p=20 but it didn't change a thing...

PCI: Aurora Systems Fuse previously used on a Mac
--This card picks up the ZR36067 driver, but it's saying it can't initialize
the i2c bus. Thus, no /dev/video* shows

Let me know which I should focus on and then I'll show the query dumps.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
