Question about Video Cameras
HOW DO YOU TRANSFER WHAT YOU HAVE RECORDED ON THE LITTLE MINI TAPES TO COMPUTER
You have to get some hardware. I use something called Pinnacle Digital Video Creator. It only costs like 20 bucks from Best Buy. It hooks to your computer through usb and to your camera through RCA or S-Video cable.

Mini dv is a digital recording and VHS is analogue so they are incompatible. Does your camera have an analogue output? That is a lead that ends with something like RCA plugs or a Scart plug. Then you can feed the signal into a VHS recorder.

To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:-
1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.

Testimonial: "OMG THANK YOU SSOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!"
Connect your cam into your PC either by USB or firewire(DV). Install the application software included. You may edit or burn it right away. There are better editing software available int he market today, like WinDVD Creator or Cyberlink Power Director and many more. By the way, to install driver connect your cam first and follow the prompt. Good Luck
