SOURCE: cant capture video

Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.

First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.

Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.

SOURCE: how to set up one-touch video capture vc500

You can use either the S-video or the RCA video connector. I don't think you can use both at the same time but I haven't tested that. Also, if you use the S-video adapter, it has no audio so you also have to use the RCA audio connectors when using S-video. Hope that helps...

Hi, I have sony DCR-HC28E camcoder. How I can connect this camcoder to my system? please reply me koranne16@yahoo.com


Hook it up to a Firewire (i.Link or IEEE 1394A) port. If you don't have one on your computer, then consider buying one. Most video editing software have a "Capture" mode, and work with all Firewire devices, without additional drivers or other software.

Firewire is the cheapest and cleanest interface. Otherwise you have to resort to video capture devices (both USB and expansion cards). USB capture devices have a wide range of capture quality. Expansion cards will be more expensive than Firewire cards, although more versatile since you can also hook up VCR's and and other video devices. Both tend to need more powerful computers, since video conversion is very compute intensive.

ONLY HAVE A S-VIDEO CONNECTION ON CAMCORDER, HOW CAN I TRANSFERE VIDEO TAPES TO COMPUTER?


Does your computer already have a capture card input function and video record software? IF not, then you'll need to purchase one. When you purchase one be-sure it has s-video input. Many have an adapter that will convert the s-video to composite video (RCA Jack type) if it doesn't have s-video to begin with. If your computer has the capture capability but not a s-video input then you'll need someway to convert the signal. Its possible to kind of cheat and use something else like a old vcr. Do you by chance have an old vcr that had s-video in. If yes try connecting the camera s-video to the input of the vcr, select the correct line in and then connect the RCA composite line out that would go to your tv to the input of your computer capture card. You could also checkout your local radio shack, best buy, etc and find an adapter/converter. If you don't already have a computer setup I suggest going to your Favorite electronic store and looking around the software section. There's lots of box sets that come with hardware and software. Some require card installs and some use external usb connect devices.

Can I upload a video from a ccdtrv37 camera to my computer ? there would have to be some sort of device between the camera and the computer, I realize, as there are no usb ports on the camera


You can use A/V interface to connect the Camcorder to the Computer and transfer the recordings.
In order to use the A/V interface, the computer should be equipped with an A/V capture card which has the A/V input port.
If you doesn't have the A/V port in your Computer, you may purchase an A/V capture card to connect the Camcorder.
It will not cost more to purchase an A/V capture card.
If you purchase the A/V capture card, you can also connect any devices like VCR, Cable Box etc and capture the videos in Computer.
Please contact your nearest Computer dealer to get the A/V capture card.
If you have A/V capture card, you can use Windows Movie Maker to capture the recordings.

VHS to Easy capture to computer


The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section. They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture. The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture. Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.

Can you get a wire to connect to the computer to transfer videos from a tape onto a computer???? Thanks so Much..........Lisa


Staples and other office/computer stores normally have very inexpensive (~$50) for "video transfer" devices. Normally they look like little boxes with RCA inputs and connect via USB. The software allows you to capture the video. The devices will work with any device that has RCA output.

Tuner cards are more expensive but have a little more latitude... They often will have coax input as well. If you are also interested in capturing TV (like through your media center on Windows) you might want to look into these. Make sure to buy one that is verified as Media Center Compatible (and the ones with the remote are great to have).

The easy part is physically getting the VCR to connect to the computer though but with the right device, the software will make capturing the video and creating a DVD or avi, etc a piece of cake! Good luck!

I wish to connect my vcr to my dell optiplex gx260 computer but have absolutely no idea how. can u help please?


you have to have an s-video cable,however you also have to have a driver so your vcr will be recognized by the computer. I'm sure you need to download the driver program from the web. i would try the vcr manufacturers web site for this. To be quite honest I never have heard a vcr being used in this particular way. the odds of you finding a driver install program is pretty slim.

Can I connect my VHS-C or S-VHS-C camera to my computer?


Since VHSC camcorders feature only analog outputs: it is not possible to connect the camcorder directly to a PC (unless a computer video card is equipped with analog inputs). The only way to transfer images from the camcorder to a PC will be using an external device capable of analog/digital signal conversion. JVC has released a capture device model, GV-CB3U which has the capability of video capture of a single frame in either Bitmap or JPEG format. The GV-CB3 can be connected to any video source through a standard video or S-Video connector and download single image to a PC using serial port (RS232C communication port). The JLIP Video Capture software necessary to transfer images to the computer as well as connecting cables are supplied with this product. You can also use 3rd party hardware (Video Capturing device) to send information from your camera to a PC. Visit your local PC or Office store for more information on other video capturing devices.
