Try this :

Declare Function capGetDriverDescriptionA Lib "avicap32.dll" (ByVal wDriver As Short, _
ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal cbName As Integer, ByVal lpszVer As String, _
ByVal cbVer As Integer) As Boolean

Usage :

Dim strName As String = Space (100)
Dim strVer As String = Space (100)
Dim bReturn As Boolean
Dim x As Integer = 0

bReturn = capGetDriverDescriptionA (x, strName, 100, strVer, 100)

msgbox("Device name ="& strName)
