Does anyoe know the best way to get VHS onto my PC? I have USB, firewire and Coax out?

Look forward to your response.

Use The Firewire connection for faster upload to the PC. You may need a an adapter for the cable end attaching to the firewire card..

Also what software are you using to do this?? Easy CD/DVD Creator V6 or Win Movie Maker or Nero V6??

Thanx for the tips using win media 9, but having probs with that. When i connect my camcorder i can only get video, no audio, but the packaged software (image mixer)(JVC dv camcorder) works fine. I dont really like this interface and would rather use win media 9, but like i said no audio. Very frustrating!

i belive audio is on a seperate cable to the video,i have 2 cables one yellow and one black.

I dont think that is it as i go thru USB.

I use USB for stills and mpegs. And I agree with Lozzy and use a firewire cable for video

ok, I'll try firewire, but i still think there is a software issue with getting audio from my camcorder to the computer as it only works with the bundled software.
