The best source for the transfer units, without a doubt, is eBay. You can review and compare available units, as well as shop for the best price. If you're not already an eBayer, you need to sign up. You can find a lot of bargains there, but you need to know what you're looking for and what it's worth before you make a purchase.

    There's no simple unit like there is for transferring still photos to digital files. For full DIY instructions, I suggest you review the article at:

    The other option is to use a professional (costly) film transfer service. You can Google "film transfer" for a list of available services.

How do transfer 8mm film to dvd yourself?


If you have time, you would project your film onto a screen, and use a video camera to capture the show. Likely, you will get rather poor quality.
When professionally done, each frame is captured separately and made into a video. Better quality, but it takes a bunch of equipment that's expensive.

It will not download pics to my computer


The camera you describe uses 35mm film and is not a digital camera. You need to take the film to a local film processor (most major stores like Target or Costco can process film) to have the film developed. You cannot directly transfer the pictures from the camera to your computer.

How can i convert tapes to dvd


You can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using A/V interface to transfer the recordings to Computer.
Once you transfer the recordings from tape to computer, you can use any burning software to burn the recordings to DVDs.
In order to capture the analog videos, you can use the Windows Movie Maker available in the Computer.

How can I convert my 8mm tapes to a digital format and save to my hard drive?


If you have DVD Recorder then hook your Video-8 camera in analog AV input and burn a DVD, this will convert analog video/ audio signal of camcorder in digital format and transfer the data on DVD as well. Put that dvd in computer and save it in computer.

My x 370 wont transfer pictures onto the film? The camera looks like it's in good condition. The roles come out blank!


Film cameras directly expose film to light to produce an image: they do not "transfer pictures onto the film", but your phrase is a big clue as it suggests you've only used digital cameras in the past and so may have made a very simple mistake with film loading.

If the film is blank as in transparent, then the film has not been exposed. If it's completely dark then it's been over exposed.

I suspect you mean that the film is unexposed as it's by far the most common fault: cameras like the X-370 have completely manual film loading; the film has to be manually engaged onto the take-up sprockets before closing the back of the camera. After that, correct loading is confirmed by watching to ensure that the rewind crank (top left knob as viewed from rear) rotates every time the film winding lever is used. Note that the frame counter will advance even if the film isn't correctly loaded. Once the film is used up, the winding lever won't operate and the film must be rewound back into the cassette before opening the back of the camera. To do this, you press the recessed button on the underside of the camera and use the rewind crank to rewind the film until you can feel no more resistance at all.

You'll find full instructions on the Norman Butkus website where he's provided a downloadable .pdf manual for your camera for free download.

Hopefully this has solved your problem; if so all I ask in return is for you to rate my answer. If it hasn't, then please add a comment and I'll try to offer other solutions to your problem.

Filming transfer


Several steps are involved. You will need a firewire or USB cord to connect your camera to your computer. You will need a video capture application on your PC. Macs come with this program, I-Movie. Once captured, the movies can be edited. Your PC will need a combination drive to burn a DVD from the captured material. An easier way: Take your camera output and feed it directly into a DVD recorder. No editing, but it is a one-step process. I use both methods.

I need game film


Greetings bayless,

It would depend on what type of connection you have on your computer and video camera. The most common way to transfer video from camcorders is to utilize a firewire cable from the camcorder to the computer. You will need to be sure your computer has a firewire card also. Record the video onto your computers hard drive with a digital video program, while keeping in mind that video is rather large before being burned onto disc, so make sure you have plenty of hard drive. Then edit, and burn to a disc.

Another option is to purchase a unit you directly hook your camcorder to and burn with this unit if you do not want to use your computer.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy
