What we did was to buy a secondhand camera of the same type at little cost, transfer the old films with our DVD recorder (if the recorder has a hard drive it makes editing a cinch), and then sell the camera back to someone who wanted to do the same!
Dear Freind , I am also using a good & nice product of Sony TRV 76E analog camcorder .I had converted all my hi8 videos to MPEG 4 format . I am using a PC with Murcury TV capture card .In camera one AV out jack is available which is connected to murcury TV capture card .First it will recored in AVI format then you have to use one good video editing tool to edit & desird video format . I think your problem has resolved.

Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.
1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on). 2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device. 3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV. 4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture. 5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode. 6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam. 7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture. 8.Start your editing work. 9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.
beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that
should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but
effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.
BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.
You need to download your movies with a Firewire cable, you must make sure your PC or Laptop has this socket, the marking near this socket on your computer has a 3 bladed windmill picture. Your cable will set you back about £10 at most good camera shops.
since your camcorder is an analog unit,it's not designed for direct computer connection.connecting to the computer will have to go thru the a/v cable.either you use an analog to digital converter device (like dazzle) or install a video capture card in your computer (but if your PC has it all you need is to run the supporting software for that device and your a/v cable). editing of course is made after downloading the videos to your PC and possible with the use of a video editing software.
The Firewire driver is already bundled with Windows XP.
Software for viewing, editing and transferring: DCRHC52 is compatible with Windows Movie Maker & Apple iMovie,meaning you can usually begin editing your footage straight away usingthe software already installed on your PC.
the camera should have "a/v"out rca jacks.
yellow is video,other is audio,hook it to your tv or vcr.
YES,you can capture to your computer,but youll need a device with capturing/editing software.
dazzle,is an external adapter,and pinnicle used to sell a package,with an internal pci card,which is capable of importing "analog"(your old 8mm,or from vcr),OR digital(via firewire)if you decide to buy a newer camcorder.
BOTH products come with editing/dvd burning software(which you WILL need)and I can say from experience,pinnicle is easy to learn!!
Look for the output jacks on your camera, hook them to your computer's audio/video input. Try accessing the recording utility on the computer then upload footage through NTSC format. You can then edit the footage. If your camera and computer utilize S-video, use them for best resolution
