    1. Where would I get a video converter?

    2. There is a connector- cable but I am not sure where on the computor I should connect it. The computor connection is not like a usb connection more like a prong shape.
    Thank You for your help.

You should use a video converter and convert it to mpeg or avi format before you can play it on tv

    if you have the cable that is used to connect the camcorder to connect with the computer then you can download the video from the cam to system..

    then you have to convert it to the format which can be played on the television...

I have an old Sony Camcorder Hi8 CCD-TRV98E is it possible to get and kind of wire that will connect it to my pc


You will need a video capturing device as Hi-8 needs to be specially converted onto the computer.

Dazzle is highly recommended for converting old videos to PC,

Here is a link for the hardware and software required - http://www.amazon.com/Dazzle-Video-Creator-Plus-HD/dp/B00392K4LQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304533499&sr=8-1

How can i download the contents of my mini tape onto the pc ?


you don't convert the files, you just downlod them via a firewire comnnection.

If you have a mini dv (cassette) camcorder....
Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video, your PC probably did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, since most computers (except possibly brand new) don't come with a firewire port, your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too. Your camcorder did come with a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder. Make sure your camera is in playback mode.
Open your editing program and choose the capture mode.

The fine print in your manual makes reference to firewire (ieee 1394) connection....


thanks.

Hi, I have Sony TRV238E HI8 Camera recorder. When I in play/edit mode, only have blue screen on the LCD with counter to and other parameters . In this mode if I move the tape Rew. or FF I have regular...


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the issue is with the dirt in the Video Head of the Camcorder. You can try using new Hi8 tapes for recording the videos to check if they are playing back normally. If the audio is working normally in the Camcorder, then the issue is with the dirt on the video head. If the issue persists with all the tapes, then the video head can be cleaned using a dry Video Head Cleaner Cassette. You can purchase the cassette from the Sony Authorized dealers or from the local electronics store. Please make sure that the cleaning cassette is compatible with the Camcorder.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to convert Hi-8 video cassettes to DVD. How do I do it


Converted all my Hi-* home videos to DVD. I first started by doing video capture to my computer, and then authoring and burn a DVD. This required special hardware and software. It was very time consuming, and the results were so-so. I then went to Walmart and bought their cheapest DVD video recorder, and hooked it up directly to my Hi-8 video camera. This was very easy, and the results were great. Recommend this method. Walmart no longer sells the model DVD recorder that I have, but here's their latest cheap one (and people seem to like it):
