Re: transfering video casette recording to my computer
if you want to transfer from VHS or an analog camcorder you need a capture card or TV card (some mother borad and graphic card have this on board).but if you have a DV camcorder check this:
if your computer and camcorder have fire wire port (IEE1394) use it and otherwise use USB (low qualty).
for software I could suggest video studio, adobe primaire (full or element) windows movie maker, or any othe program which comes with you camcorder.
I hope this helps...

The proper codec may not be loaded on your computer. Find the format your DVD recorder uses, Google for a codec for that format. Find a player that supports the code, download and install it onto your computer and then try the DVD.
Be sure that there is enough memory that will store the recorded video. If there wasn't enough memory then delete or transfer important recorded video on your pc by downloaded it. If you still use the casette tape, be certain that your battery is in good condition and setting for video is in the right place. I hope my advise will help you.
you will need to hook your camera up to the fire wire to transfer itto the converter so connet the firewire to the camera and hit the play button however I don't know if your converter has a program that finalizes the video once your done recording. On some camera's it will finalize the DV and then it is the only thing you can use to transfer to the DV converter or to your computer, let me know what type of camera you have and I can tell you how to connect it to do it.
You can use a card reader to transfer your file from your handycam to your computer. Remove the memory card in your camera and insert it to the card reader and insert it to your computer to transfer your recorded video.
To transfer any audio or video casette to cd you need an audio casette player/vcp or vcr for playing back the video on the computer, a video capture card installed on the computer and the software to capture the video like Pinnacle which will save the audio/video file in mp3, mpeg format on the computer. The casette player or the vcr can be attached to the computer tower through the video capture card.
You need some hardware to transfer the tape digitally to your computer. I use a cheap device from Best buy that ran around twenty bucks. It has software with it and everything. Basically its a device that has RCA ports and an S-Video port on one side and connect to the computer through USB. Its kinda a headache cause you have to play the Digital 8 tape through the hardware on to the computer and save it as a MPEG. Then you can put it on a flashdrive or email it to people. Much easier just to get a digital video camera if you have the funds.
