Question about JVC GR-SXM260E Camcorder
I don't know what cable I need to hook my camera up to the computer and it's really frusterating. I know it is S-Video and I have a Nvidia GeForce MX 4000 agp. I have a S-video slot on the back of the computer but what do i need to get them from the camera to the computer?
As far as i can tell, your Nvidia is only capable of outputting video, if you wish to input video from your camcorder you will need a video capture card. the cable will then depend on the configuration of the card, but may well be a standard s-video cable. Try a quick visit to a computer store, and see what video capture devices they have to offer, if you need more advice on these then please ask. An alternative solution would be to hook your camera to a stand-alone dvd recorder using the s-video connection. You should then be able to watch and edit this footage in your pc - you will probably need some software to do this(ask if you need help), but you should be able to at least view your footage in windows media player or similar. The cheapest option may turn out to be replacing your camera with a digital one that can be directly linked to your pc through a USB connection or similar. all the processing of the image is done by the camera and the software that comes with it, so no need for a graphics capture card. Follow this link if you wish to obtain more information about your Nvidia card. http://www.nvidia.com/page/home.html Hope this helps :)
