Video capture function has weak audio when using dongle connectio
When I capture a video from my camcorder or vcr using the input on the tv mode the audio is very weak. if i use line level audio from the rca jacks and if I use an amplified audio source the audio gets distorted before it is really as loud as it should be. I cannot find an adjustment for the audio input. You cannot use the line in on the motherboard and combine it with the video input from the dongle. This makes poor videos for u-tube. What am I doing wrong? xp pro sp 2

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.
The computer must have standard Audio/Video (A/V) RCA input jacks and
compatible video capture software to complete this procedure.
Because there are many different video capture applications on the
market and we cannot reasonably know which video capture software you
are using, Sony is unable to provide specific instructions or support
for software we do not manufacture.
However, many video capture applications have detailed help files,
including specific instructions about capturing and importing video
from a camcorder to a computer.
The help files should be available in the Help menu of the
video capture software or in a separate file on the software disc. If
you cannot find instructions in the help file or on the disc included
with your software, consult the software manufacturer for more detailed
Connect an A/V cable to the A/V output jack of the camcorder:
If your camcorder has standard A/V RCA output jacks, use standard A/V cables for the connection.
If your camcorder has a mini A/V output jack, use an A/V cable with a mini connection on one end.
Connect the other end of the A/V cable to the A/V input jack on the computer.
Turn on the camcorder to the VCR, VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
Cue the video in the camcorder to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
Turn on the computer.
Start the video capture software.
Begin playing the video in the camcorder.
Begin importing the video with the video capture software.
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.

I have heard this works, going to try one today, I have tried EVERYTHING else, downloading drivers, diffferent programs, firewire cords, so I think this will work, when I googled our specific camcorder, this matches, also, some people are selling the exact sony camcorder on ebay with this included, stating they have used it to connect to their pc. Hope this helps.
The following Models can be used as a recorder to record from a VCR, TV or another Camcorder.
2004 - SC-D107
2003 - SC-D5000, SC-D27
2002 - SC-D180
Recording In Player Mode
1. Connect the camcorder to the VCR or TV with the AUDIO/VIDEO cable (provided) (to the A/V Outputs on External Device)
2. Set the power switch of the camcorder to PLAYER mode.
3. Turn on the VCR or TV.
4. Insert the blank tape with protection tab closed into the camcorder.
If you want to record from a connected VCR, insert a recorded VHS tape into the VCR.
5. Press the MENU button, turn the MENU DIAL to highlight A/V and press the ENTER button.
6. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight AV IN/OUT and press the ENTER button to select AV IN.
"AV IN" and picture appears on the LCD monitor.
OUT : Releases the INPUT mode.
7. Press the START/STOP button to set the camcorder to REC PAUSE mode.
"PAUSE" appears on the LCD monitor.
8. Select the TV program or playback the VHS tape.
9. Press START/STOP button to start recording.
If you want to pause recording for a while, press the START/STOP button again.
10. To stop recording, press the (STOP) button.
* Recording from an analog VCR to the camcorder is only possible when the VCR is playing back at normal speed.
* If you want to see the camcorder picture with a TV, set AV IN/OUT in the menu to OUT.
To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR).
Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios:
When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control.
# When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode.
# Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR.
Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.
You can't with what you've got
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in order to play tapes in a vcr and run them through a digital camcorder for output to a computer, the camcorder must have s-video or av inputs. Your camera only has s-video or av outputs, used for sending from the camera to the vcr or tv.
Also, some cameras have the inputs but don't support analog to digital pass-through (which is what you are describing). With these cameras you input from the vcr and record it to the tape in the camera, and then output it to the computer.
Without the inputs, you can't do either one.
