Digital camcorder to convert VHS tape to PC for DVD burn

I cannot figure out what cord I need to do this. I have a JVC GR-DVL 120 DIGITAL VIDEO CAMCORDER, I want to use my VCR to play tapes and then run the wires from the VHS (STANDARD INPUT/OUTPUT and S-video jacks). THe camcorder has AV and S -Video. I am thinking if I get an S-Video cable, I can run that between the VCR and the Camcorder, then hook the camcorder to my pc. Will this work? I dont want to spend the cash on an S-Video cable unless I think it will work. Any suggestions? Also is there specific S-Video cables, I read somewhere that I need the Sony . . . I am using Windows Movie Maker to capture the input. Thank You

Re: Digital camcorder to convert VHS tape to PC for DVD...

No you cannot run video through your camera to PC After looking over the manual to your JVC GR-DVL120U camcorder, there is no way for your camera to accept an incoming signal from a audio/video source and then send the signal out to another recorder, PC or otherwise. In order for that to work you would need to have a audio/video "in" which does not exist on your model, only a composite video, left/right and S-Video "out". Your best bet is to purchase a video capture card for $50 and install it into your computer. Or you can purchase $98+ stand alone DVD recorder. Then you simply run a video and left/right audio cable to it and record. If you need help on selecting/purchasing a video capture card and how to install it, let me know. Unfortunately, there is not a cheap way to do this. Unless you would like to send the VHS to me and I will be happy to create a DVD for you for $25 plus shipping. I will need about 2 weeks for turn around time. Hope this helps. Take Care,

Re: Digital camcorder to convert VHS tape to PC for DVD...

You can't with what you've got I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in order to play tapes in a vcr and run them through a digital camcorder for output to a computer, the camcorder must have s-video or av inputs. Your camera only has s-video or av outputs, used for sending from the camera to the vcr or tv. Also, some cameras have the inputs but don't support analog to digital pass-through (which is what you are describing). With these cameras you input from the vcr and record it to the tape in the camera, and then output it to the computer. Without the inputs, you can't do either one.

Conversion vhs to dvd


I can only offer you 1 option for this case.
In converting the VHS video tape to DVD you can use computer. All you need to have is the VHS player with RCA audio video cables. Then a computer that has video capture card or USB capture card. This will take time but you can just transfer all the copyrighted videos to DVD and to computer data (post to internet)

*Needs realtime transfer VHS to Computer with the prefered resolution option.
*Burn to DVD, it will depends on your DVD drive speed.

I HAVE JVC GR-DX307 AS - how to save the video on my laptop or how to save it on dvd


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To save the video on a computer, a firewire connections must first be established from the JVC GR-DX307 AS to the appropriate firewire port of the laptop (assuming it has one or through a PCMCIA firewire adapter card if required). In the camera, the FireWire/DV port is located beneath the mode dial on the left side of the JVC GR-DX307’s body. To access the FireWire/DV port, the LCD monitor must be first opened.

Soon as that connection is established, you can use Windows Import Video (Vista) to capture / download the videos.

Alternately, the A / V port of the camera maybe used to connect to a DVD Recorder for direct, realtime copying & burning. For the disc to be playable in another machine, it must be finalized.

Good luck and thank yu for using FixYa.

I need a VHS adapter for the JVC Mini DV tapes


not available - the tapes are different widths for a start, and the two formats use different compression techniques. Adapters are available for VHS-C to VHS because the tape width and the recording format are the same.

BURN HOME VIDEO TO DVD


Assuming that your camera is not equipped to interface directly with your PC, here are the steps to take to get your videos from VHS to DVD:

- Purchase a video capture device.
A cursory websearch garnered once for $50.00 here:
ADS Tech Video Xpress
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1902901,00.asp

- After setting the device up, use the bundled software to convert the video file into DVD format and then burn to disc, using your favorite burnig software. Be sure that it is burning in the VIDEO_TS/AUDIO_TS format and not just copying the .avi to the DVD.

If you would like for me to elaborate on anyt of these instructions, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at likwidstate2@hotmail.com. Good luck and, again, let me know if there's anything else I can do. I think you'll be just fine though as this process is fairly straightforward...just time-consuming.

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD


Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.
