Use the provided cable for your camcorder that includes either a rca (yellow, red, white) end or s-video, component, etc... then plug those into the input of your vcr.  you will need to select the correct setting on your vcr (possibly input 2) to view the camcorder.

Can I hook my camera to my VCR video in

We might stand a chance of answering if you tell us the make and model of the camcorder (I assume), the make and model of the VCR machine, and the output connections from the camcorder and the input connections on the VCR.
Alternatively, the respective manuals may give you some indication as to whether it is possible.

Camcorder to vcr a/v hook up and record

All you need is an connecting lead that comes out of the camcorder and that terminates in three phono plugs. One yellow (video) one red (right audio) and one white (left audio). As you can see from the stock picture on your post the VCR front has the corresponding coloured sockets. So you plug them into that. Sometimes these sockets are hidden on a cover. If your VCR hasn't got them, you can use a scart socket located on the back. You get a scart plug with the same connections. If it has male plugs you will need to get 3 female in-line connectors to connect your leads.

Once connected using the VCR menu or the channel selector, select the AV socket you have connected the camcorder too. Start it playing and you see the picture. Providing you have a tape in the VCR pressing record will capture the picture from the camcorder.

I have a MacBook pro and no software for my computer to recognize this camera. Is there a place I can download the stuff I need.

The cord that comes with the camera is a USB cord. USB on this camera is used only for downloading still images. You need to get a Firewire cable and use that. Once you hook up the camera through Firewire, open up iMovie and turn the camera to VCR mode or turn it on. It should pop up with a window asking you to import.

Unable to load video to imac

Most cases, with apple product, I did not have much problem compare to PC computers. I'm not a Mac user but we do have hookup at the shp and simply we use iMovie program to edit and test equipment. Here is how we do it. 1. Set the camcorder at VCR mode and play short portion for a few time for operation. 2. open iMovie program, 3. hook up the firewire cable. If this procedure did not produce the connection, you may have a hardware problem. -James

Converting vhs tapes to computer using camcorder

I think it's possible if you change a setting on your camcorder.  Turn your camera on to VCR and then hit the menu button.  Look at 4. AV In/Out Setup and make sure your DV Out is set to ON.  I think this will make it work.  If not, try changing your playback functions.  I think the problem either lies with the fact that the camera is using its RCA connections as outputs instead of inputs, or it's not sending the signal on to the VCR.
Hope this works for you -

Digital camcorder to convert VHS tape to PC for DVD burn

You can't with what you've got I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in order to play tapes in a vcr and run them through a digital camcorder for output to a computer, the camcorder must have s-video or av inputs. Your camera only has s-video or av outputs, used for sending from the camera to the vcr or tv. Also, some cameras have the inputs but don't support analog to digital pass-through (which is what you are describing). With these cameras you input from the vcr and record it to the tape in the camera, and then output it to the computer. Without the inputs, you can't do either one.
