How to transfer home video's to computer to make DVD's

Hello. I have a Sony Handycam Vision CCD-TRV108 NTSC camcorder and a Compaq Presario computer. I want to transfer my home video's that I made on my Sony Handycam to my personal computer. I've looked all over the internet just about, and cannot for the life of me, find any info about how to do that. I want to know what kind of cable or any other accessories I need in order to do what I want. Is there a specific kind of cable I need that would work with both my camcorder and computer? Please help me! Thank you so much in advance!

Compaq Presario is a product line that has very many configurations. If you have a video capture card you should have all you need. You can identify if you have a capture card by looking at the connectors on the case. Video capture cards have a wide verity of options but it will have the same kind of connections that TV’s and VCR’s use. If you don’t see this type of connectors you don’t already have a capture card.
You options then would be to get a capture card installed or get a USB external capture device. If you plan to be doing a lot of video transfer I would suggest you would get better quality and performance out of the internal card installed in your computer. Most computer shop and many consumer electronics stores should be able to assist you.

Try using different tape or a new tape in the Camcorder.

Clean the video heads using the Sony V8-25CLD cleaning cassette.

You may also try pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds to reset all the settings in the unit to the factory defaults.




Good luck!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

I would like to connect a sony ccd-trv108 ntsc,to my computer.What cable will i need.


Your camera will not connect directly to a computer.
What is required is and A/D Converter box (analogue to digital).
You connect the camera to the box with RCA cables and from the box to the computer a firewire cable.
Play the camera manually and the computer converts on the fly.

I have a ordinary Sony Handycam Vision 8m not a digitcal cam and I want to know what do I need to connect it to my Compaq Computer with Window 7. I just want to watch my videos on it, so please let me know...


You will need an Analogue to Digital Converter box to get the signal to a computer.
Use the RCA video and audio connectors (yellow, red, white) to go from camera to A/D Converter and then a firewire cable from the A/D Converter to the computer assuming the computer has a firewire port.
Firewire is also caleed IEEE1394 or iLink.

Sony ccd TRV108 NTSC does sound recording only black screen in viewfinders and lens cap is off. thanks battery charged dclee4@telus.net thanks


On these camcorders the "RCA" video jack is a switching jack. This is so the cam will record from an ext video source instead of live video. Try exercising this switching lack by repeatedly plugging in and unplugging an rca video cord. This may be a solution to your problem.

Sony handycam and pc transfer


Hello,
Sony CCD-TRV218E is analog PAL camcorder and can not be hooked with PC directly.
Computer (PC) requires digital format files to store on HDD and your camcorder has no digital file format to directly transfer in to computer.

You can hook your camcorder with DVD recorder to burn a DVD. Now you have digital files on DVD and can be transferred in PC.

I dont kno how to get my videos on my computer with a sony ccd-trv108 handycam or wat kind of wiers i need


Sony CCD-TRV108 is analog camcorder and you can't connect it directly with computer because computer requires digital format audio-video signal files to store and further process.
If you have DVD Recorder, hook up camera with it and burn movie on dvd disc. Now you have digital data / files for computer.
Need further info, let me know please.
