Converting tape to a PC from camcorder

how do i go about doing that from a Hi-8 to my PC or CD?

i have the dual VHS and DVD combo unit to watch them and i think they record so can i plug my camcorder into that TV and record onto a DVD? do i even have that option, if so what should it say, DVD-R?

can i drop it off to someone that has that software and setup for non-digital camcorders?

i have some very cherry stuff from last night and other escapades with posers and racers

Re: Converting tape to a PC from camcorder

I can do it on my computer but it may take a little while. I have to hook my VCR up to my Tv tuner and record it onto my computer.

You can buy a TV Tuner card for somewhat cheap and just hook it up from your computer to your VCR.* Record it on to your computer then just burn it onto to a DVD-R if you have a DVD burner.* My mother has been asking me to do some for her for the longest but I just never take the time to do it. That's how I know to do it from VHS unless someone else knows a more simple way.

Re: Converting tape to a PC from camcorder

try convert-x it was on the news the other day. *it cost like 79.99 and from my understanding it works wonders. *Of course my wife is going to want to get the births on it. *I told her i'm not editing that. *I mean I sat and had to watch it three times I think I can't take anymore. * :eh:


but they said with it, it comes with the software and you can edit it add music and backgrounds and all kind of . *I'm going to fry's to see if they have one for a brotha. *

Re: Converting tape to a PC from camcorder

not sure what Sony camcorder you have but Some have a separate cable you can get from CompUSA that goes straight from camcorder to USB most video editing softwares will have an "import media" feature to get it from the camera.

Werd, or if you have a cable then it would be allot easier and less time consuming to do it this way.
