Sorry my friend, but these Hard Drive cameras are not a good idea to catch movies on, yes it is a new idea, but the only proper way to catch movies is on Tape like the 8mm if you like most you want reliability, even the DVD is a poor way to take movies, they simply go wrong like Hard Drives too often, your hard drive simply was NOT operating when you thought it was, sorry but you should try and grab a proper camera like a Sony Hi8 and get a safe way to catch films.
connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable.
Switch on the cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.
You can then use Move Maker to any disc burning software like Nero to create the movie disks.
I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.
Do you have another video camera that will hook up to your computer? In the past, I've connected my old Hi-8 to my Mini DV, recorded the footage from the Hi-8 to the Mini DV and then digitized on the computer from the Mini DV. You will however need some video software like iMovie for this solution.
You can also, hook the Hi-8 camera up to a VCR or TV using the appropriate cable and view it that way.
