If this is a Dig8 camcorder, it should have a DV jack. From this, you can use an iLink cable (firewire cable) to plug it directly into your computer. If you have a DVD burner on your computer, this should work for you.

Instructions:

  1. Connect an i.LINK (firewire) cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.
  2. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer. NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
  3. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  4. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  5. Turn on the computer. Your computer should recognize your camcorder and automatically install the needed driver.
  6. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  7. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the capture software. It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.
Hope this helps you.

Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's


A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.

Is it possible to copy video from a vhs to a dvd?


If the DVD drive is a recorder, yes. If it is a player only, no. If the tape is copy-protected, recording to a DVD recorder is not possible. Assuming the tapes are not copy-protected, and you are using a DVD recorder with the correct format DVDs (DVD-R for example), you shouldn't have any problems transferring old VHS tapes to DVD.

How can you transfer vcr movies to dvd's through the sylvania rwi-r device? thank you!


I connected my VCR player to my DVD recorder with a stabilizer filter; (a little black box) sometimes called a Digital Video Macrovision Stabilizer. These cost about fifty bucks. Play the tape hit record on your DVD recorder.

It's worth mentioning that this takes a while an eight hour tape takes eight hours to record.

Toshiba d-vr600 record without viewing the whole tape


Unless both units has stated high speed transfer capabilities I think you have to do them one at a time and watch the entire video.
There are some units that are one unit for vhs to dvd. Panasonic is known to have some units but you are going to probably have to hunt for one. It will clearly state that it transferred compressed or highspeed.

Connect a dvd-vcr recorder to my tb


you will need an external dvd recorder to record vcr tapes to dvd. Sometimes you will have problems with quality when you do it this way. I have transfered vcr tapes to dvd with a transfer device using the computer and got much better results. If you need the name of the transfer device just get back with me and I will get it for you.
