Transfering my video tapes to DVD

I have just uploaded into my new computer the Sony software so that I can transfer my tapes to a DVD. I'm following the instructions exactly as the booklet indicates. It asks me to insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc. I do that, but it keeps telling me to insert a disc. Why is it not recognizing that the disc is in and that everything is ready for the burning process? I have over 30 tapes that I want to convert into digital but I can't do it because of this problem. Any suggestions please?

    Hi, thank you for your reply. I only have one drive installed in my computer. Also I have tried blank DVDs as well as blank CD-Rs as the manual said, but nothing worked.

    I'm sorry for not adding a comment to this earlier, but it is never too late. I was able to burn my movies from my camcorder using the program that came with my computer, a program called Sonic and it worked perfectly. I didn't have to use the program that came with my camcorder because that way it didn't work. So thank you for the different solutions that you gave me. Everything helped.

A couple of quick observations: -If you have two or more optical drives you could be inserting the disk in the wrong one. -You may have just misspoke when you said *insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc* but just to make sure you need to be inserting a blank DVD disk and not a blank CD. No offence intended, especially since I?ve made both of these mistakes in the past myself :)

    Sorry for the delay in response, I?ve been working on a work-related crisis today.

    If you're sure your DVD burner is working then I suspect that your software isn't configured correctly or it simply isn't recognizing your DVD player.

    I would test your drive to make sure it will still burn DVDs, Check the software?s web site for new updates and to see if it supports your specific DVD burner and lastly reinstall the software watching for errors.

Video no longer transferable to PC


One of the most important things for transfering files from a camera to a computer is the software installed on the computer. Perhaps you did forget you installed this when your camera was new. The software came with the camera.
Try reinstalling the software that came with you camera, or us an external memory card reader. You don't need extra software to transfer the file from the card to your computer, but you still need software to play the video. You also could try to install a free video player like gom player. There are more free players. There are so many different video formats, so chose one that can play lots of different video formats, if you don't have the Sony CD or DVD.

How do i go about transfering vhs-c video from an


You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.

Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.

Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.

The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.

Transfering video ... but no audio is coming


normally, cameras send audio separately on a different cord. if it does have a separate audio cord, this will likely be plugged in to the blue input on the audio card of the computer.

Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Unfortunately, it's not exactly a trivial process. The basic steps are as follows:

1) connect the camcorder to the computer
2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer
3) optionally, edit the video file
4) upload the file from the computer to youtube.com

1) the camcorder has 4-pin 1394 (also called firewire or i-link) jack, and the computer (if equipped) either has 6-pin 1394 jack or 4-pin 1394 jack (on some notebooks). if your computer doesn't have a 1394 jack, you need to buy a 1394 adapter (eg. pricegrabber.com)

2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer hard drive using editing software or a software utility designed for doing just that. this software may come with the camcorder or the 1394 adapter.

3) optionally, use editing software to take an excerpt from the file, rearrange parts of the video, add titles, etc., and output a new file

4) upload the file to youtube.com. there are some guides on their website as well (eg. youtube.com)

I hope that helps.
