Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV318 Camcorder
I have a CCD-TRV138. I used to have a DCR-TRV730. I cannot view the old tapes on the new camcorder. How can I convert the old to DVD? Help! Thank you!
If you want to record your video tapes on to DVD's using your computer you will need to install on to the computer a video and audio capture card that is compatible to the player that you are going to use for the source. Along with that you will need to install the necessary software that comes with the capture card set, and also you will need the matched interface cables. The computer will also need a large enough hard disk to hold the video information.
You need a player that is compatible to read the old tapes. You can feed the player to a video capture card on your computer. You can then record the video programs on to your computer. After they are recorded, you can start buring DVD's.
There are also professional services that will transfer video tapes to DVD's. They will have much better quality equipment than what you could afford for home use, and you will save a lot of time, energy, and cost compared to doing this yourself, unless you are determined to do it and don't care about the time and cost.
