if the cam has composite ports, you can hook it up to a capture device
I have a canon v400 cam. it doesnt have a firewire port. can i attach it to my PC thru USB and convert 8mm tapes to DVD? I surffed the net and found out that there are AV to USB cords available. but this cam just has two sockets, yellow and white contarary to white, yellow and red. Assuming I am able to connect the cam to my PC, can i control its playback thru a software like the windows movie maker like it is possible for the newer cams?
