Seems you need something like a DVD-recorder with a compatible input. Something like: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/dvd-player-recorder-1080p/1308074847.p?id=mp1308074847&skuId=1308074847&st=dvd%20recorder&cp=1&lp=1#tab=buyingOptions
Be sure to know the different between composite and component signal!
I have a really old camcorder and i want to transfer my old videos on the tapes to my laptop. The camcorder is really old and only has a S-video port (it has 8 pins in a circle so i guessed it was that). I have still have a cable that came with it which had a S-video to audio and video and i can watch the tapes on the television but i want to store them on my laptop before they degrade from time or whatever. Your help would be much appreciated!! Thanks in advance
