Sharp VL-Z900H-s viewcam mini dv recorder

I have had this camcorder for a few years but have never been able to transfer the video element from the camcorder to my computer. I have been told to install a firewire card which I have done and also have a cable to connect from computer to camcorder. Unfortunately, when I turn the camcorder on nothing happens. Do I need something else to make this happen, like software and if so where do I get it from?

There can be a whole gambit of issues with these Dazzle devices. I hate them. Also friend have tried to copy to PC via firewire from mini DV camcorders. After a video of just a few minutes they run into lipsync problems.

For what its worth, I've managed to copy my VHS home video to DVD without issue and you may already have the equipment.

I hook up my VHS recorder with a DVD recorder which also has a HDD. Daisy chaining it on to a TV to monitor. All with scart leads.

Play the tape, record to the DVD hard drive. Finally edit and dub to DVD.

Hi and welcome to Fixyah,

Open your Instant DVD recorder and then go ahead and select Go Direct to the advance mode. ONe window showing out there. Select your Dazzle dvc device and then click on options. Now click on video input and then click VHS input. On video input choose video composite if your video cable is yellow, red,white cable. Then click okay. Make sure that your cable is direct connect to the video out put of your camcorder. If still the same thing uninstall your video device driver. Video device is located under control panel>system>hardware>sound video and games controller then right click on pinnacle video and audio device uninstall. Restart the computer.

Sound


Digital cameras don't record sound. You would need to either add your own sound with video editing software or record the video with a camcorder.

DFI NB78-BC, chipset i845PE does not work with TNT2 Vanta VL 16MB


I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the DFI NB78-BC does not support the TNT2 Vanta VL 16mb. so what you need to do is take your computer into a computer store have them look at it and they can get you the correct video card that is compatible for your computer!

Video playblack really slow when transferred to Computer


Most of camcorder was bundled with the cable and the driver..
There are 2 type of cable , first is usb , and the 2nd is firewire...
USB 1.1 is having 150 MBit/s while USB 2.0 have 480 MBit/s and Firewire maybe vary depends on the type..
Though you must have good specification of computer when you want to burn the video and make it readable to the CD/DVD player... or just want to play in your computer..
This is the specification .. you should check it whether it's match or not..
1. The processor.. It's better to have the Intel Pentium rather than AMD because your transfer take a long time to go.. to transfer the data.. AMD produces more heat than Intel..
The bigger clock of the Processor and mostly the bigger L2 cache memory of the processor is the better...
2. Harddisk
You must have a harddisk more than 80 GB because when you transfer the data from camcorder to your harddisk, it takes a large amount of disk space.. this also will reduce the performance of the playback , since windows will give you warning of low disk space...
You must have a harddisk with it's bigger cache memory especially 8 MB memory.. This will speed up the playback performance....
Your harddisk also must have the minimum spindle rate of 7200 rpm (this will accelerate the level of playback) The bigger spindle rate of the hard disk will always increase the reading level of your data which reside in it...
3. The amount of Memory ..
Make it sure at least you have 1 GB RAM
PS: Better to have DDR2 RAM because the higher bandwith...
Try to use the identical chip (not by brand) especaily when you use 2 kind of memory)
4. Mainboard ...
Use the intel chipset ,,..(as the north bridge and the south bridge).. frequently accelerate the performance better than sis or via..
Optional : find the dual channel memory bank and place the point 3 (2 identical memory here).. it will boost up your play back performane
5. The Graphic Card
Use at least 256 MB Graphic Card which have 8X data transfer rate... you can use PCI express with X16 when your motherboard support it..
Hope this thing will solve your problem...
if it doesn't email me at Profsoh_bk@yahoo.com and don't forget to vote

Video transfer


Hi,
You can stop and start as much as you want. Then you just hit play and record it onto your pc with the software. There is software you can get that will know when you start and stopped and will break your video up into scenes automatically onto the computer.
Hope that helped,
