My guess is that you need a USB mini connector to connect the camera to your computer.

    Any major electronics store should have it. Just tell them what kind of camera you have and they should know,better yet take your camera with you when you go...

I have a VPW8OU vIDEO CAM CORDER. i AM WONDERING if I can play the tape onto my pc somehow

Tape video recorders are unfortunately old technology. Video sent to a tape is not a fully digital file in the sense that it is not read by computers and has to be captured when you play it back into the computer and turned into a video file. Unless you are savvy with computer connections and software requirements and are able to connect up the camcorder so that it is recognised by the computer AND capture software, the easiest way might be to get someone to put the tapes down onto a dvd for you. Many retailers advertise this service.

Video tape to DVD conversion

There appears to be quite a few problems with people trying to convert their video tapes to DVD using a PC and propriety converters, editing programmes etc.

Friends have also has such issues, lip synch being one of the most prolific.

I've successfully converted mine, without too much issue and managed to avoid these issues.

I hook up my VHS recorder with a DVD recorder2_bing.gif which also has a HDD. Daisy chaining it on to a TV to monitor. All with scart leads.

Play the tape, record to the DVD hard drive. Finally edit and dub to DVD.

Do not have an installation CD. How can I transfer the captured video to my computer. Can I get the required driver for my panasonic NV-VZ18

Im assuming this is a tape camcorder. If so, you need to identify what type of tape it records onto.

I believe mini DV is the easiest to digitize. For that you need a IEEE 1394 input on your computer, and video capture software on you computer.

I cant say much about older tapes, except that most any tape there is some sort of external USB converter for a PC for about $30 (very roughly)

hope this helps!

What cable is required to download the recorded video on tape?

To download from the tape (not the memory card) you need a firewire cable, and a computer that has firewire compatibility. Most laptops have this, but desktops may require a firewire card to be installed.

How to play tapes.

Although I don't have that particular camera, I've read that you have, basically, two options. Connect the camera to a USB port and download the tape to the computer (proper software required), then you can can download the file to a dvd. Otherwise, you have to buy a special recording machine (starting about $80) to transfer the tape directly to a dvd.
