Need help importing video from analog camcorder into my pc

I have an ATI Radeon 8500DV card and it has a "dongle" (attachment) that has ports for both standard RCA or S-Video input. Whenever I plug my Sony TRV318 analog camcorder into it, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do next to capture the video signal on my pc. There's some vcd player software that came with my ATI card, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I considered buying an analog video converter, but it seems like it should be possible to capture it using the dongle that came with the card instead. Can someone please help?

The manuals seem clear to me. Did you install and read them? Some don't since they prefer printed manuals.

I can't seem to transfer my videofrom my jvc gr-sxm540 camcorder to my pc. I do not know how to do it


You can get videos from this camera, or any analog video source, into a computer. You just have to play them into an analog video interface port. These are available as expansion slot cards for a PC. They will come with drivers and probably software to digitise the video input and record it to a file. Lots of third party video editing software will also be able to accept the input from this kind of port. You don't need any "driver" related to the camera, it is just a video signal source. The connecting leads will be standard RCA signal plugs, like the ones you use to connect to a TV or VHS recorder. You probably already have a lead for this.

Is there a way to connect the hitachi vmh710a camcorder to the computer?


Well yes... If you have a Card or USB Video IN Dongle, that will accept Video IN, then you can connect up your camera, to this Via the Composite Video OUT & Audio OUT on the camera, and hook up to the Composite Video IN and Audio IN, to the Computer. Then you can use the software that came with your card or Dongle, or in fact any software that handles Video IN and then you can do as you want.

I need to import video from my canon zr500 to my pc


Hi!

You can import videos from your camcorder to your PC using a DV cable. Check this page from the user guide of your camcorder.

Basically, you need a firewire port and a DV cable. Most computers (new ones) already have firewire ports (or 1394 ports).


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Transfering video casette recording to my computer


if you want to transfer from VHS or an analog camcorder you need a capture card or TV card (some mother borad and graphic card have this on board).but if you have a DV camcorder check this: if your computer and camcorder have fire wire port (IEE1394) use it and otherwise use USB (low qualty). for software I could suggest video studio, adobe primaire (full or element) windows movie maker, or any othe program which comes with you camcorder. I hope this helps...

CCD-TRV138 is analog camera and you can not attach directly with PC. You need MPEG Card or something in PC to digitize the analog audio-video signal. That card will give you input connections for camera.

Connecting analong camcorder to computer


The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided. After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided. Connecting to a PC 1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack) 3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC. Notes: * If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged. * If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly. * In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder. Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.

Transferring analog to DVD


I envisage two options for you: 1. Install a video capture card in your pc. Choose one that has ports that match your analog camcorder ports. Best option: Separate capturing using S-video + a separate audio connection. Common and simpler option: Campture "composite" video using one video + one audio jacks. You don't need a new camera to make DVDs from your analog tapes. 2. Buy a pass-through (must be this type, not all digital cameras have this function!) digital camera. Connection and flow: analog camera (or your analog VHS VCR)to digital camera (via RCA cables); digital camera to pc (preferably using Firewire)- all simultaneously. Here, the digital camera will perform the function of a capture card. You will certainly need a software to capture via capture card/pass-through digital camera to your pc hard disc. Your captured video on pc can be initially in AVI/ DV AVI(better options to edit) and then convert to MPEG2 (DVD) format, or directly in mpeg format (with poor editability). Frame size (capture resolutions) should be as big as possible. In any case you will need some basic knowledge on digital video, capturing, and editing. And all the nitty-gritty that you will need to know can be found somewhere like "Digital Video Primer" and "DVD Primer".

Can I connect my VHS-C or S-VHS-C camera to my computer?


Since VHSC camcorders feature only analog outputs: it is not possible to connect the camcorder directly to a PC (unless a computer video card is equipped with analog inputs). The only way to transfer images from the camcorder to a PC will be using an external device capable of analog/digital signal conversion. JVC has released a capture device model, GV-CB3U which has the capability of video capture of a single frame in either Bitmap or JPEG format. The GV-CB3 can be connected to any video source through a standard video or S-Video connector and download single image to a PC using serial port (RS232C communication port). The JLIP Video Capture software necessary to transfer images to the computer as well as connecting cables are supplied with this product. You can also use 3rd party hardware (Video Capturing device) to send information from your camera to a PC. Visit your local PC or Office store for more information on other video capturing devices.
