You need a program that will capture data from your camera to the hard drive. Pinnacle Studio will work with your camcorder. Insert USB or firewire cable into your camera and into you computer. Once you turn the camera on and the software has been installed, a dialog box will come up on the screen requesting you to load up the studio program.

    The drivers aren't going to help you transfer the video. Most DV drivers are built into Windows XP.

    Windows Movie Maker will not recognize your camera. That program is no longer supported by Microsoft.

Is it possible to convert their old Video 8 movies to digital? If so, how do I do and what equipment do I need?


Hi. Yes, especially since it sounds as if you may still have your Video 8 camera, but if not then get one on eBay etc. - you could always sell it back when finished.

I think you may want to record the movies in another form, e.g. DVD, so they can be played more easily on PC or TV.

If so, a VCR or DVD recorder would still do the job but it would be best to play the movies with the Video 8 camera plugged into a DVD/Hard drive recorder. This would best allow editing before later saving onto DVD from the hard drive.

You could get video capture software to record the movies onto PC but I have not tried this and think it might prove more complicated.

Transfer movie from mini tape to computer - JVC.....well, hello i found that people have the same problem i do i;ve got this JVC digital camera GR-D770U...and unfirtunately i don't have a software disc...


You can download user manual in PDF format from this link:
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/JVC/GR-D770U-_E
but that's not a point. The point is that you can use any video editing software (with no driver), that accepts capture mode starting from standard Windows Movie Maker for beginners to CyberLink PowerDirector, Ulead DVD MovieFactory or similar. This can be made by plugging your camcorder to PC via USB or FireWire (iLink, IEEE1394). Of course you can record to Digital Video Unit Equipment (DVD recorder) if you have one. Good luck!

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

Books have been written on this subject. The easy answer is go to a reputable camera store rather than an electronics store, tell them what you want to do with your camera and they will suggest models that suit you. All camcorders are now digital but some record on tape, some on a hard drive or DVD and some on memory cards. Those using tape don't have to compress the image so much and give better pictures. Normal digital video is quite good enough for an amateur, but high definition cameras are becoming cheaper. All cameras have sockets to transfer the recording to computers or other media or even play the recording direct to a television. Most recorded video benefits from transferring it to a computer, using an editing program, adding titles and burning it to a DVD. That way your friends will want to see your work more than once.
Finally, again I say - go to a camera store on a quiet day with plenty of time to listen to their advice. You'll learn more than anyone can tell you in an answer here.

A substantial percentage of my Memorex 3.5 "CDs won't finalize, and when I subsequently try to review the photos on the camera, it tells me there are no files on it. Nothing will download to the computer via the USB either.
There is a software program that always saves me when I get careless and fill the disk to full. It''s called CD Roller. It''s called CD Roller. good luck please mark the post with a fixya
