    Camcorder help......

    Hi guys

    Can anyone offer any help ?

    I have a film of my ferarri driving experience from the weekend, & I want to put it onto a DVD.

    I taped it on a camcorder on a Hi8 tape.

    Anyone know what software/lead I need. I take it I can do this via my firewire port ?

    Many thanks

    I don't know about a firewire port...:?

    If you have a TV card, you should be able to use that. I've got stuff from my camcorder onto PC using TV Card and Windows Movie Maker.

    You should have a lead that has a 3.5" jack on one end, then a couple of phono leads the other. Jack end goes into camcorder. The phono leads should be a yellow and black one.....I think the yellow is video & black is the sound. Plug these into tv card and movie maker should pick it up....thats about all I can help with...hope it helps tho! :thumbsup:

    I could also use a DVD recorder (camcorder set to play, recorder to record) - but I want to do it via the PC.

    It's given me a clearer picture. I need to go home & see which cable I need.

    I'll let you know - ps, and it's not that type of film !!!!!

    u will need a firewire cable
    i dont think there are different types like the usb ones

    as for software windows should be able to exrtract it from the camcord unless u have specific software

    Hubby went to one for his birthday, he went in the 360 modena and a lambo murcialago. :thumbsup: When he got out of the lambo he tried to look all 'Top Gun' and cool... but you could tell he was dying to squeal like a pig :giggle:
