Is this a JVC or a Sony (as on the header which says Sony DCRTRV265E Digital 8)?

If it's a JVC MiniDV it takes different (much more common these days) tape. EITHER machine has the type of connector you need to do the next part of the job:

If your laptop has a DV/Firewire/i.Link (all different terms for the same type of connection).

All you need is the right cable; generally, laptops have the same type of connection as the camera (small 4-pin connector, flat on one sice, convex on the other.) Make sure to get a generic cable; no need to spend $$$ on Monster etc. Of course, you need software that's capable of capturing. Best is to get a package such as Adobe Premiere Elements (there are numerous others). WIndows has a movie making application but it's VERY limited.

When you play or record a DV tape it is "sticky" it "stutters" and therefor cannot record properly anymore.


Hi.

You need to get hold of a mini DV tape cleaner and use that to clean the small rubber wheels and other components that grab and move the tape along them. That should resolve the problem of the tapes being sticky and should record properly. I also suggest that you get some new tapes too as the old ones may transfer dirt back again causing it to become sticky again.

I AM UNABLE TO COPY VIDEOS FROM TAPE TO PC


Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.

Transfer from pz card shot on HD to mini DV tape


you can transfer to DV tape only by using software like Edius 6 or a similar one.
First you download the p2 card on the hard drive and then you use this program to convert the video file to DV and use the camcorder as recorder connecting to pc via firewire .

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.


Hi!
You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

Sc-d353 video transfer from Mini dv to computer


In order to transfer the taped video, the software that came with the camera, has to be installed. Once this is done, plug your camera into the computer, using the USB cord, and it should be recognized, and the software program should kick in and you can then transfer the files. Sometimes you will have to go to the actual drive itself and copy the images over to your folder of choice.

Recording from the Mini DV to VHS Tape


Mini dv is a digital recording and VHS is analogue so they are incompatible. Does your camera have an analogue output? That is a lead that ends with something like RCA plugs or a Scart plug. Then you can feed the signal into a VHS recorder.

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.
