I have a Sharp Viewcam (Hi8) model number VL-H770. I'm wondering how I can connect this to my PC so that I can transfer the data from the Hi8 cassettes & burn to a disc on my pc. Any help appreciated.

You can get videos from this camera, or any analogue video source, into a computer. You just have to play them into an analogue video interface port. These are available as expansion slot cards for a PC, or sometimes as a USB plug-in interface. They will come with drivers and probably software to digitise the video input and record it to a file.

The connecting leads will be standard RCA signal plugs, like the ones you use to connect to a TV or VHS recorder. You probably already have a lead for this.

Once you have the video on the computer, you will need DVD "Authoring" and burning software, which will usually come as part of the same package. You can download such software for free from the internet- my first stop would be

Is there a way to convert Sharp Viewcam Z, mini-dv, model vl-z1 to infrared?

I did not realize it meant buying a membership or paying...I have not fixed the problem but am not interested in joining. I don't think there should be a charge to simply ask a question. But, I understand if you are a business that requires that.
Thanks anyway...especially for responding.

You must intall your USB Driver Software that came with the camera THEN connect the camera to the computer with the USB cable that came with the camera. You should use the software that came with the camera via the START menu OR Windows may automatically recognize the camera at this point and guide you through the process.
