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

OP did not state what model number of the video
flash ACD card he has.
no PC stated
OS (operation system (windows what?)
no OS stated (XP) this matters big time to match good relic software and drivers.
no sound card stated, (if a card or on mobo)

lacking all that key factual information all I can say is.

1: test the VCR with a real amp yet, hardware, not the PC? if this fails the TAPED audio is no good.
or connected to a TV with RCA jacks,?

2: using the PINK jack is microphone and is hopeless using that. use the light blue jack. line-in

3: never ever connect a speaker amp to line-in,'or you will overload the line in pre-amps and they WILL CLIP/Saturate. (horrible distortion).

4: get a real sound card, use that, buy one, that has good software drivers for you unstated OS.

5: better is to get the video/sound Gongle USB. device for $10

one of the above 5 choices will work, as always.

6: buy a real camera. used, one that records to SD cards. not tape.
end the usage of tape, is always best.

SDR card, Sony DCR series Handycam.
to MPEG-2 format.

composite video from VCR, do you have composite?quality video.(magic good tapes, LOL)
or the USB video/auto DONGLE from Amazon, etc.

    he is using LINE input , not speakers.
    VCR line L/R to sound card.line in.
    so only line in is adjustable, for sure not the VCR. (rca audio jacks)

    what he needs is better video capture device.
    assuming the Tape is good, and is dream there, no?

    time to upgrade.

    or better sound card, there are endless examples of sound cards and quality.
    some even have filters, and extra's on line in,

    never connect a speaker amp to any line jack
    the line it is 300mV max. (each card has its own rules here)
    the speaker out of an amp at 5watts
    is near 6 volts, 20 times too much.
    they doing a tests.
    take that VHS tap
    connect the VHS L/R RCA to any audio amp.and speakers if it sounds ok then the tape is good if not? , NOT.
    easy using only hardware that dont lie like computer can.

    if that test passes then we attack the sound card unstated in your post, or is it just the
    unstated mother board, line in jack.
    omg your not using MIC jack are you?
    never connect line in to mike,
    line in is light blue, pink is MICrophone , or mike as we say.
    once this is correct from VCR direct to Linein blue.

    then we need the correct sound card driver.
    from the maker.
    no PC stated, nor sound card so , no help possible here.

    which one, there are many models.????????

    the 8500 DV from 2002 (15 years old? that one?
    this card has video flash ADC.
    720x480, 8MB-per-second MPEG-2

    but has no sound on card.

    the OP uses and unstated PC and unstated OS and sound card to digitize sound.
    ether the driver is wrong for your sound chip
    as is so common on 15 year old PCs
    that is the problem.

    RECAP and conclusion:
    1: tape sound is weak, (bad tape or recording methods wrong)
    2: a real amp test, (per above) passes tests.
    3: a newer sound card works.? it sure will
    4:or buy the USB video/ sound capture device.
    this is best as it has great software that lets you record many formats even MP4.

    use only the blue jack on the sound card.
    3.5mm with RCA to 3.5mm adapter.
    A "Y" adaptor RCA- left/right to mini phone jack. to jack ONLY.

    get and run the correct driver for your sound card(or chip) my guess, its is wrong.
    and never once stated. what is there.

    i did this all the time back in year 2000
    before DVDs/
    and did audio work back to 1965.
    Tape then.
    My guess, is the best answer is buy a real camera from this century.

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.

Sony handycam ccd-trv35e how to video record on my laptop

Hi there.

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 support information.
  1. 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. avstnd.png
    If your camcorder has a mini A/V output jack, use an A/V cable with a mini connection on one end.

  2. Connect the other end of the A/V cable to the A/V input jack on the computer.
  3. Turn on the camcorder to the VCR, VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
  4. Cue the video in the camcorder to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
  5. Turn on the computer.
  6. Start the video capture software.
  7. Begin playing the video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the video capture software.
Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

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.

Watching tapes on TV

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.

Digital camcorder to convert VHS tape to PC for DVD burn

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.
