Hi well there are a few ways to do way is to obtain a USB Video IN dongle, hook up to the camera's AV OUT and Sound OUT ports either Yellow, Video, Red & White Audio stereo out, or Green, Red, Blue, All Video, and Red & White, again Audio out.and press Play on Camcorder and "recorded" read "Saved" on PC with the DTVR, (Digital Television Video Recorder) software, and you may save it in any format required, then post process the saved video using whichever program you wish.
Another way, IF you camera allows is to use a connecting cable either USB or Firewire, also one must obtain and install the "Driver" for the camera usually this will have come with the camera or is obtainable from the manufacturers download website. Again, hooking up to a PC, and recording with DTVR software. Once again to save in whatever format MPG4, HDTV H.264 whatever. and post process again with whatever software one wishes.
Thats about it really, so you need a way of getting the signal into the PC, a way of recording the signal in, and a way of processing the saved video file. There are many programs on the 'net to do this. Simply Google DTVR digital Video recorder, video post processor. Windows Movie maker is good, some programs allow one to save and process all in one. Also sometimes the manufacturer in your case Sharp, often put out there own software for doing all this again it often comes with the camera on a DVD etc, however again it is most likely available for download from the Sharp website, if you want it.

Model VL-E65OU - how can I burn DVD from the 8MM cassette tape into my computer? Can I purchase a TV cable that will go from TV to computer? Would I need software in my computer to do this? OR can I go...

1. You need a firewire cable to connect camcorder to the computer.
2. Use the CD that came with the camcorder to install drivers.
3. The computer will detect it when you power ON the camcorder.
4. Use Windows Vista MovieMaker (free) to transfer and "edit" video and/or create a DVD disc

I have a sharp camcorder model vl-e785u and I am needing to know if there is somehow to download my tapes to a computer to burn to a cd.

I don't know about downloading to a computer, but you can buy a VCR/DVD recorder for about $140, put the VHS-C cartridge in the adapter and transfer to a DVD, or plug your Camcorder into a DVD recorder (about $119) and copy. It couldn't hurt to check out some of the transfer services that could do a little editing and copying for a modest fee.

Sharp VL-E610

Get a firewire (IEEE-1394) cable insteaad of trying to use USB. Make sure that both camera and computer have firewire ports. Set camera to Tape/VCR or whatever setting you use when you playback your tape on your camcorder. Just leave it on that setting, don't hit "Play" or anything. Make sure that you have rewinded to the spot where you want it to start (a few seconds before, actually).

If you have WIndows Vista, you don't need drivers. The built-in Windows Photo Gallery will recognize it and will ask you if you want to transfer the tape. It will walk you through the whole process, if you want to transfer the whole tape or only parts of it. If you don't have Vista, you might try downloading Windows Live Photo Gallery but I don't know if it has the same functionality.
