Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-Z1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Want to transfer videos from a mini DV cassette to computer.

I have a Sharp Mini Digital Camcorder model VL-Z1 and want to transfer the videos to the computer so I can burn DVD's. The machine didn't come with a USB but with an AV/S Video cable. The S-Video side does connect into the computer but the computer does not recognize the hardware. Is it possible for me to transfer the videos with my current set-up or do I need to buy a USB connector or something else? My model is Sharp VL-Z1S. Is it the same CD? Is there any way of finding it free, because I have lost mine? If not, where could I find it? Could I download the software from the internet?

Hi
Basically what you need is a video card in your computer. Then you can connect your AV/S cable from the camcorder to the computer video card. When you buy a new video card, it usually comes with a free basic editing software which you can use to capture the video on your computer. Hope this helps.

Clean up your head with the mini Dv head cleaner cassette. If still problem persists, give it to company personnal for repairing this problem, because this is the problem for the head. The head is the costly part in camcorder. So please give it to authorized person other than the local technician.
