I have a Dell 8400 pc. It has a tv out, a dvd+rw, a legacy video capture device, 128MB PCI Express x16 ATI Radeon x300 SE.
My question is: can I connect a vcr to my pc to transfer video to dvd. And how??
my s-video cable connects to my pc but not to my vcr or video camera, is there a cable converter?
I have tried asking just about everywhere.
1. What does the super vid cord plug into exactly on your computer? It is labeled IN? Some card or?
2. Type of software used to capture?
3. Things to help vid capture follow.
No spyware at all.
Updated mother board drivers.
Other programs that run in background turned off.
Clean and defragged harddrive.
Harddrive with enough capture space.
I have a sound card that has a "line in connector and I have (sofware) sonic dvd, and Windows movie maker. Pent 4, 512mb,128 mb pci, dvi/vga/tv-out radeon x300, dvd+rw,cyberlink software decoding. in my device manager a legacy video capture device is listed. Thank you for your help and any advice you have to offer.
Does ADVC100 require an additional capture card?
I am running WinXP on PIV 512Ram.
Using Audigy2 for audio but am unhappy with my current old ADS Instant DVD USB 1.1. The resulting MPEG2 file, burnt to DVD with Roxio has trouble with Set top player: no audio. Plays OK on PC.
so if i install a firewire port i will be able to connect my video 8 camcorder directly to my pc? my camcorder is not digital, does that matter? i have been reading so many conflicting reports. i also have many old vhs format that i want to save on dvd, can a vcr also be connected to the firewire port? thanks for your help. any more advice is much appreciated.
My last reply was for your post before it. You would still need the Canopus or other device to convert from analog to digital, then from there it would go into your firewire port.
Once you have it set up you can just as easily connect your VCR to it and digitize/import/edit video from VHS tapes, and make DVDs if desired.
You can use one of the cables from the other post. Most newer capture cards have both composite and s-video. Be sure to read timwerx's link. I have added a couple of links, the video card at tirger works well is low cost, it comes withsome software but WMM2 is probaly better.
Pinnacle makes a fullrange of products lots of options there. If your thinking of buying a digitial cameracorded many of them will covnert analog video to digitial and output it on firewire to your pc, so you might want to consider this option. John
