Have just bought new computor which doesnt have a dv opening so i cannot connect my sharp camcoder to computor, is there an adapter for this dv cable?

Many computers come without a dv connection though of late quite a number are catching up. What you need is to buy a firewire 1394 card, called the I-link card by Sony. This is the card that you put in your computer on one of the PCI slots. The firewire card usually comes with the cable and software for it so you don't have to worry about that. If you are not able to put the firewire card yourself then get someone who is computer literate to do it for you. Hope this helps you.

I need to transfer my sharp VL h860 Hi 8 tapes to my computer to burn them to DVD. Whats are my options? Thanks!

You can get videos from this camera, or any analogue video source, into a computer, but you need more than just a cable. You have to play them into an analogue video interface port. These are available as expansion slot cards for a desktop PC, or as a USB plug-in interface (which is what you need for a laptop). The interface will come with drivers and probably software to digitise the video input and record it to a file. Lots of third party video editing software will also be able to accept the input from this kind of port. You don't need any "driver" related to the camera, it is just a video signal source. 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
