Re: Video to Computer

As far as i can tell, your Nvidia is only capable of outputting video, if you wish to input video from your camcorder you will need a video capture card. the cable will then depend on the configuration of the card, but may well be a standard s-video cable. Try a quick visit to a computer store, and see what video capture devices they have to offer, if you need more advice on these then please ask. An alternative solution would be to hook your camera to a stand-alone dvd recorder using the s-video connection. You should then be able to watch and edit this footage in your pc - you will probably need some software to do this(ask if you need help), but you should be able to at least view your footage in windows media player or similar. The cheapest option may turn out to be replacing your camera with a digital one that can be directly linked to your pc through a USB connection or similar. all the processing of the image is done by the camera and the software that comes with it, so no need for a graphics capture card. Follow this link if you wish to obtain more information about your Nvidia card. Hope this helps :)

How do I transfer a recorded tape to my computer

You need IEEE (Firewire) or "DV" cable to transfer video from the camcorder to your computer. The connection is "DV" and is located on the front of the camera next to the "S" port. The marketing for this camera was deceiving...most customers thought they could hook up the USB to their computer and upload video...well you can't

Camera hooked to computor?

you need a USB cable that usually comes with the camera, and once you plug it in, your computer should find the software to upload the pictures on to the harddrive. Similar to how you would use a firewire to transfer videos. You can buy a USB cable if it didn't come with your camera

I was told by Best Buy I could use the USB to transfer video which is not the case, you have to get the firewire cable. To get the computer to recognize the camera (for still images not video) you have to have the memory card in the camera then hook up the USB.

I can't copy my videos to my computer/CD's.

We too are having this problem. When we open our editing software, on the pc, to communicate with the camera, the camera responds with the pc, although there is no picture image showing on the pc and as a result we can't capture any video footage.

We are planning to try a different firewire cable, to assess whether that is the issue.

How do I transfer my camcorders recordings from HI8 tape to a computer or DVD?

Do you have another video camera that will hook up to your computer? In the past, I've connected my old Hi-8 to my Mini DV, recorded the footage from the Hi-8 to the Mini DV and then digitized on the computer from the Mini DV. You will however need some video software like iMovie for this solution.
You can also, hook the Hi-8 camera up to a VCR or TV using the appropriate cable and view it that way.
