Unable to switch from "Norm" audio track on old tapes

I've been trying to transfer some old tapes to my pc using the Firewire connector. Previously I've had no problems wiht this however the same tapes with transferred both video and audio fine previously will not output a clear audio signal now. It seems to be something to do with the unit automatically switching to "NORM" on the audio output and will not permit me to save HI-FI or L/R - it simply switches back to Norm when set to play. The audio signal is being output but at a very low volume with no clarity. I've tried other tapes which are more "up-to-date" and they work fine but have probably been recorded with a Hi-Fi recorder rather than the ones which I'm now having problems with. Also tried a head cleaner. It seems strange that the audio signal cannot be selected whilst the unit is playing. Thanks for any help!

    Thanks for your comments - you are right - I fixed the problem by cleaning the separate head.
    Since posting I bought a new Panasonic 737 VHS-DVD player/recorder and the audio signal given by that on older tapes is really good compared to the JVC.

Hello, this problem is because of the nature of previously recorded signal. The recording made in an older way (mono) has a separate head and the solution for your problem can be to clean the head. This head has two functions, for control pulses and audio signal. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Mackie 402VLZ4 4 how to connect to pc

It depends on what I/O is available on your PC. If it has an analog input (typically a stereo 3.5.mm connector), you can connect that to the mixer's Tape Out connections (cable needs 2 RCA plugs on one end, 1 3.5mm stereo plug on the other).

If the PC only has USB or Firewire connections, you need a computer interface. Something like an M-Audio M-Track or PreSonus AudioBox USB. Connect from the mixer Tape Out to the line inputs on the interface. Connect USB (or Firewire) from the interface to the PC.

I have an older JVC Camcorder model GR-D21EK which I would like to connect to my PC and transfer all my old tape recordings. I have a new PC running Windows 7 and have installed a Firewire card for DV...

Check with JVC online and see if there is a software driver download for your camera. You may need to contact their customer support. Also try using google to find a driver for the camera.

I AM UNABLE TO COPY VIDEOS FROM TAPE TO PC

Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.



Thank you for using FixYa!

Cannot transfer tape contents to PC

Hi,
To transfer video from your camera you will need a firewire cable and a firewire port on your PC. If you don't have such a port you can buy a PCI firewire port.
After you connected your camera with firewire cable you can then use windows movie maker to transfer your video.

Unable to export video from camcorder to PC

Get a 4-pin Firewire cable. Plugs in just below power plug slot. What plug you need on the other end depends on your computer. You can get Firewires in 4 to 4 pin; 4 to 6 pin, and 4 pin to USB. My laptop is configured to take a 4 or 6 pin Firewire but my desktop only has USB. I transfered using 4 to 4 pin and it worked great. No drivers, no discs needed...at least with Vista. As soon as I plugged in the camera, I was asked to whether I wanted to transfer from biginning of tape or at currenty location. I chose from the beginning and the camera automatically rewound and strated to transfer to the PC. I don't know if it would work same way with 4-wire Firewire to USB but assume it would. Cables around $35 but I purchased at Circuit City for the going out of business discount. I also bought some SD cards so I can take snapshots and transfer them too for print.

Get a firewire and you should be fine.

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.

Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
