Staples and other office/computer stores normally have very inexpensive (~$50) for "video transfer" devices. Normally they look like little boxes with RCA inputs and connect via USB. The software allows you to capture the video. The devices will work with any device that has RCA output.

Tuner cards are more expensive but have a little more latitude... They often will have coax input as well. If you are also interested in capturing TV (like through your media center on Windows) you might want to look into these. Make sure to buy one that is verified as Media Center Compatible (and the ones with the remote are great to have).

The easy part is physically getting the VCR to connect to the computer though but with the right device, the software will make capturing the video and creating a DVD or avi, etc a piece of cake! Good luck!

How can I transfer from tape in camera onto dvd

How do you put video from your camcorder to your computer?


With a Canon ZR70MC camcorder, you can record video onto miniDV tape, or onto the SDmemory card in Card Camera mode.

To access video on the miniDV tape, you will use the DV cable (IEEE 1394 aka FireWire). Connecting this cable to your windows computer will allow you to transfer high quality video using the software supplied on the digital video solutions disc, or just about any other windows video editing software.

To access videos stored on the SD memory card, remove the card and place it in a card reader connected to your computer, or attach a usb cord to the camera and the computer. Video stored on the memory card is limited to 10 second clips @ 320x240 resolution.

Unfortunately, it's not exactly a trivial process. The basic steps are as follows:

1) connect the camcorder to the computer
2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer
3) optionally, edit the video file
4) upload the file from the computer to youtube.com

1) the camcorder has 4-pin 1394 (also called firewire or i-link) jack, and the computer (if equipped) either has 6-pin 1394 jack or 4-pin 1394 jack (on some notebooks). if your computer doesn't have a 1394 jack, you need to buy a 1394 adapter (eg. pricegrabber.com)

2) transfer the video from the dv tape to a file on the computer hard drive using editing software or a software utility designed for doing just that. this software may come with the camcorder or the 1394 adapter.

3) optionally, use editing software to take an excerpt from the file, rearrange parts of the video, add titles, etc., and output a new file

4) upload the file to youtube.com. there are some guides on their website as well (eg. youtube.com)

I hope that helps.

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,
Konstantin

Transfer video from tape to computer


mjtlj:

You will need a firewire cable to successfully transfer video from your tape to your computer. It also greatly helps to have a firewire port on your computer. Once you have connected your firewire port on your camera to the firewire port on your computer, you can use windows movie maker to transfer video to your computer. (File > Import for Digital Video Camera)

If this has helped you, please report this problem as fixed :)

Transfering video to Mac


Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.
