Hi Guys, I have an old Video recorder using Hi8 tapes and want to transfer them for editing. I have previously used Pinnacle with the blueBOX for uploading analogue video, but it keeps crashing my machine and is more trouble than it's worth. Is there a cable I can purchase for a Sony camera to convert the output leads to USB?
Thanks for the info lads. I think I may have found the problem. On start up yesterday I got a message on the POST screen, Disc boot failure - insert system disc, and again this morning. I looked it up in the Forum pages and tried everyting advised but still the same and that I need to replace the HDD. Is it possible just to transfer everything straight from the Master to the Slave drive. I transferred the card and installed the software for Pinnacle on a PC with just XP on it and it works fine on there, no crashing.
Using disc wizard was easy. The problem I now have is that the C: drive has a primary partition and a logical partiton (F:) How do I amalgamate the two. I have tried disc management and partition master but neither will let me join the two.
