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):

I have recorded the videos in my Hi 8 Cassettes sony handy cam CCD-TRV418E. I want to copy the files to my PC and burn the CD's. My cam recorded doesn't have USB port. Please help me how to go about...


You will reqquire an A/D (analogue to digital) Converter to go between the camera and PC.
Connect the camera to the Converter with analogue cables and the Converter to the PC with a firewire cable.

I have a really old Canovision8, E40, 8mm camcorder that doesn't work anymore. What's the best solution to convert the tapes to DVD or to the computer?


Hi,
You need Hi-8 camcorder/ Hi-8 player to playback your old Video-8 tapes, hook that camcorder/ player with DVD Recorder, play video-8 tapes and burn DVDs directly.

Sony handycam video cassette


To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD


You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD


Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.
