I have old 8mm tapes from a very old camcorder.. an analogue camcorder. i dont have this camcorder anymore, however i want to transfer these old tapes to DVD, i realise that there are companies that do this for a fee however i have about 20odd tapes, so i would rather do this myself. could someone please explain how this can be done..? and what leads or whatever do i need to purchase.... thanks :)
i thought that would be the best way to do it... i just thought they may have been a quicker way than transferring them to VHS and then to DVD... what a potch!! never mind i guess i cant cut out the middle man,,, so when they are VSH format... how do i hook that up to the PC?
Analogue makes no difference, the Camera would connect to the Phono sockets, usually on the front of the DVD Player/Recorder. As in this picture of my own setup - the phono leads shown, are coming from my camcorder and although they are connected through the VHS VCR, that in turn is connected via Scart to the DVD Player/Recorder beneath it. Which means that I can bypass the VCR and record direct from the camera to DVD.
