Hi can someone please tell me what i need to convert my old vids
One hour + $45---
Although the View Cams are no longer supported by Sharp most I remember have a digital connection through which the video will upload to you computer. Laptop, desktop or tower? IEEE 1394/ iLink 4-pin or 6-pin? Find the appropriate connection for your computer and go. The Sharp's end should be a 4-pin connector. You computer's native one probably is 6-pin. Any consumer electronics store will have the 4-to-6-pin cable. Cable to computer then cable to turned off camcorder. Turn on camcorder. Windows Media or Toast will handle most simple home projects. No IEEE 1394 on your computer? I get a generic PCI-slot add on card (up to $20 at the same stores), install it and (already have a DVD burner?) ..go!
The alternative path costs about $80.
Take the cam with you to the store. Find a generic A/V cable( a 3-ringed 1/8-inch pin plug[to the camera with video=yellow and 2-channel-white=left and red=right]audio dangling from the other end for a converter) and buy a A>D converter(Turtle Beach, Dazzle etc) that connects via USB. These converters usually come with software to make happen what you want. Good Luck
