Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV308 Camcorder
Hi - I am looking for a third party adaptor for connecting my old sony analog camcorder - ccd-trv70 - to a new dell studio 1735 laptop computer. l Want to transfer the old hi-8 video tapes to the new laptop to convert them to DVD/CD.
Please tell me you have something I can use????
You need to get a Digital to Analogue converter such as the Canopus ADVC110 A/D Converter. (circa $225). There may be cheaper alternatives. (you might also be able to use a digital camcorder that has a built in Analogue to digital converter):
Canopus 77010150100 ADVC110 Converter
The Canopus comes with a 6-pin firewire cable. Since your Dell Studio has a 4 pin Firewire (actually called iLink) you will also need a 6-pin to 4-pin cable or an adapter:
Firewire 6-PIN To 4-PIN Cable
Cables To Go - 27028 - Firewire 6-Pin Female 4-Pin Male Adapter
You hook your Sony up to the A/D converter with audio and video cables (usually supplied with your camcorder) and hook the converter to you Dell with a firewire cable. Then you capture the video using some video capture software. I don't know what comes with windows these days.
