Unfortunately those old camcorders generally aren't compatible with modern computers. But don't give up hope, you may be able to find back roads and such to get it onto a computer. I'd suggest doing some research on the computer. Hope that helps.

Getting footage from a cassette onto a mac


Sorry but the only way to transfer the tape is to be able to play it in a compatible camcorder or player. Then use one of the analog to digital converters "available on the internet" to transfer it to a PC.
Best bet is to ask some friends if they have an old camcorder that will be able to play that video cassette for you.
Sidenote: If the cassette is fairly new it might already be recorded in digital format, in which case you only need a compatible camcorder or player and a USB or Firewire cable to import it into your Mac

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote if the answers you seek are helpful.

How do I upload video footage from my JVC Cybercam GR-DVL520 onto the computer?


I believe you are trying to download video footage from your camcorder onto your pc. ( and not the other way around- from pc to camcorder).
If thats the case plug in your USB cable supplied with the camcorder onto your PC and which will register as a new drive on your system. For some cameras you need a special video capture card which needs to be plugged into your PC to allow video to be downloaded. An example is the IEE- firewire series. You will also require a simple video capture software to capture and save the video footage as a workable PC file. Try reading up on the brochure which came with your camera which I believe will provide more details. Normally video cams will come with such software and the necessary cables. Recent camcorders come with a harddisk & it is much simpler to download as such systems are recognized by a PC as just another new drive on the system. Try out the above and I believe you will be able to do it. Bye

TRANSFERRING VIDEO FOOTAGE TO COMPUTER


Hello,
you can access via USB only SD card on your camcoder.
The only way to transfer from the tape is via Firewire (IEE 1394) . You should have this port on your PC or laptop, if not you can buy external firewire card .
regards,

Transfer from my canon dc210 to my pc


If you can play the DVD disc on your computer you will be able to transfer footage and edit it.

Put the DVD disc into your PC's DVD drive, then

1. Select 'start'
2.
Select 'My Computer'
3.
Find your PC's DVD drive in the display of devices shown, right click on it, then left click on 'Explore' in the drop down list.
4. Copy all the files you see shown with the 'Explore' option to a folder on your hard drive.

You can now use the software you normally use to edit the files you've just transfered to your hard drive.

Cant transfer footage from Canon DC201 onto computer (and eventually internet) Do I need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer?


You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.

One of two things has gone wrong
1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely
2. You have not finalised the disk.

You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.

Disc Read Error Sony DVD Handycam


I am just throwing these out there as food for thought. Make sure you ended the recording on that other side. If a DVD is left open(meaning more could be written to it) other dvd players have a hard time reading the info. Put in one of the 2 sided disc's that worked. how does the camera recognize the disc? Then insert the troubled disc and see if the disc info is being read the same. i.e. disk size, manufactuer, open/closed? Check for a firmware upgrade for your DVD burner/player(s). Let me know how things work out. Tim
