Hello,

Yes, but make sure the model type is what is listed below although they should all be the same today as there are no standards war. For your PC you will need a video capture card unless your video card has it, chances are it doesn't. You would have an adapter already that came with your video card that has plugs coming out. There would be 5 or 6. If you don't go to tigerdirect.ca or newegg.com and do a search for "video capture card" Prices range from $50 and up. Get one with the best warranty is my advice and if you wish I will find one for you from a reputable card maker. Just ask me by commenting below. And if you have any questions about the details below just ask me by commenting back to me.

    To sum up, if your camera won't provide digital ouput, then having a digital input solution would make no difference. If your camera only has a yellow video rca plug out and/or USB out then analogue is what matters and the capture card is the only option to support your camera and the Smart Disk Producer will give you all the features you need to edit your video to your heart's content. Once, you outgrow and want to do more then you can look at software such as Sony Vegas Studio.

Fast tape playback for samsung vp-l770 can't watch at normal speed on camcorder?


Tapes recorded on one camcorder very rarely play back satisfactorily on another machine - you will have to use your old camcorder to view them, or else get them transferred to DVD

8 mm and the newer super 8 mm video tapes are different. You can't use super 8 mm in old player. And old tapes won't play well in new super 8 mm players. Like Sony!

I had a similar problem with a Cannon Optura PI and had to send it in. It was better, but I still have problems on occasion. If your intent is to transfer all the tapes to media, I would suggest purchasing Toshiba's DVD Video Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder. Model: DVR620KU. I use a VHS-C Cassette Adapter to play my VHS-C tapes in and the dubbed them to a DVD. Works great. Unfortunately, there is no 8mm/VHS Adapters, since 8mm, Hi8, miniDV are different formats with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with past or current VHS technology. Your best bet would to borrow a HI-8 Camcorder and then dub your tapes to DVD's using the Toshiba machine. Here is a link to the Toshiba machine. http://www.testfreaks.com/dvd-players-recorders/toshiba-dvr620/
Good luck

Video transfer


I had the same problem. I tried to solve this issue by buying a dvdmaker usb 2.0 gizmo. I have to use my VHSc cassette adapter and put it in the vcr.I connected the vcr and new gizmo to the pc and could see the video on my monitor- but no audio. So I tried plan b, which didn't requite any other purchases. I connected my old camcorder to my newer digital canon camcorder (which converts the signal from analog to digital) this in turn, is connected by a firewire to my pc. I can see (and hear) the video on the viewer of the camcorder. So far, it isn't being captured by my pc. Is this a Vista issue ? I don't know. I'm hopeful... I'll figure it out!

How do I transfer hi 8 tapes to DVD without the working camcorder


Greetings jamhere,

I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy

Transferring camcorder tapes to VHS


It depends on what speed these tapes were first recorded on. Maybe the camcorder your trying to use to play them back do not support this tape speed I have seen this in the past. Are these 8-MM or VHS-C tapes.. Also the tapes that were recored, maybe tyhere was something wrong with the tape path and was slightly out of alighnment. I had once a Sony 8-MM camcorder and tapes a lot of stuff and then gave them to someone to watch and they would not play. I tryed the tapes again in my camcorder and they worked great. I got a test tape and tryed it in my camcorder and it turned out the tape path alighnment was off, so i had to rerecord everything I had from one camcorder to DVD so i could fix my camcorder. Good Luck
