How to connect Sony CCD-TRV238E Hi-8 to pc

With the camcorder you should have a lead with a small (3.5mm) jack plug at one end (connects to the camcorder) and at the other end three phono plugs (red/yellow/white).

These can be plugged into either your TV, dvd/video recorder or, IF you have the card in your PC a video input card.

I'm guessing that you probably won't have the card in the PC (on the back of the PC would be two or three phono inputs) in which case you would need to install a card or use an external capture device such as Dazzle (link below).

If you have a dvd recorder (under the TV) these have the inputs you need and can burn direct to DVD but you can't edit the film.

Hope I've not confused you too much

Copy video to laptop

you need a capture device, like a capture card or, if you cannot afford one, at least a tv tuner (on usb) be careful though, if you buy one, to be both digital T and digital C, otherwise you will experience unpleasant surprises. (as myself, when I bought a cheap one, it was just digital T, so I couldn´t use cable tv or the likes of it because it needed digital C for the job...)
