I need the AV cable and the printer cable that goes under the rubber flap on the right side of the back of my camcorder. I have been unable to get my pc using XP to recognize my camcorder or view videos on a TV. Please advise. Sean

check to make sure that you are using the correct cable. Unless you have connections for separate left and right audio, the cable that you should be using will likely be a 1/8" plug that has *4* sections on it, a stereo patch cable will have *3*, and may also be shorting one of the contacts.
You will need to borrow or buy a DVD-Recorder, either way it's best to follow the manuals instructions on how to connect your camcorder (external device) to the DVD Recorder for Recording to DVD. Most camcorders come with a set of AV (audio/video) Cables for this purpose. On your camcorder you will find a little rubber door that houses the terminals to connect your cables to. Depending on how old your camcorder is you will find a Yellow (video) and a White (audio) and on the newer ones that have stereo capabilities...you will have a Red (audio), all these connections are video and audio Out-Inputs and should be connected to the Video and Audio "In" terminals on the back of the DVD Recorder. Now make sure your battery is fully charged (It's best here to use an AC Adapter for your power supply instead of your battery, which also usually comes with your camcorder if bought new.) and that your VCR-C tape is loaded and completely re-wound. Now if you want to watch this on your TV while you are recording to DVD...you'll need another set of AV Cables that come with a new DVD-Recorder, and hook these cables on the Out-terminals on the back of the DVD- Recorder and the other end of the cables to your TV's Video/Audio-IN terminals on the back of the set. Finally...Set your camcorder switch for Playback, turn on the DVD Recorder, And turn on your TV. Now you can go ahead and record all your VCR-C tapes to DVD! Any other questions?

i HAVE THE SAME CAMERA AND HAVE ALWAYS CONNECTED USING A FIREWIRE LEAD WHICH I PURCHASED SEPERATELY it's under oneof the rubber flaps and is called DVOUT. You will need to purchase a firewire lead which has that small connection on one end and whatever size your firewireport connection is, on the other
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.
