Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR82 Camcorder
I purchased the SR82 specifically because it says it has an analog to digital converter. I read online how people can convert their analog 8mm tapes to digital files via a digital camcorder to then be saved on thier computer for editing/storage. So I hooked up my old Sony analog 8mm camera to my new SR82 via a Sony VMC-15FS cable, pressed play on the analog camera .... and nothing. I pressed the play mode, record mode and any other buttons I could find on the SR82 but no images of the analog camera tape can be seen. So, what am I doing wrong? I even tried hooking up the SR82 to my computer via USB to see if 'pass through' would work, but I can't get the computer to read anything either (other than what is stored on my SR82's harddrive). My computer is a new Sony Vaio with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit. Help!!
Are you sure that the software is designed to work on such an old version of Windows ?

you can do that with EASYCAP usb2, a camcorder video capture card card " USB Convert VHS Tapes CAMCORDER to DVD Capture 0" , on ebay from wanghaostore. 10$. works perfectly, useful to digitalize VHS tapes too.
