Camcorder to PC for editing

  johnincrete 11:28 29 Oct 2012

Since I bought my last camcorder that used tapes, they seem now to record onto flash memory or hard disk. WShat do I look for in a specification that tells me if I can transfer the recording to a PC for editing (and subsequent burn to DVD)

If they record to a memory disk then you simply remove the disk and connect to the pc ina disc reader or connect the camera. I'm not aware of any camcorders than cannot transfer data to a PC for editing.

Are you saying that disks in a camcorder can be put in a PC reader like a CD or DVD?

No - only camcorders with minidvd are like a cd or dvd. But some camcorders use memory cards and they go in a memory card reader.

You need Movie Maker

Free Download

It should pick-up your Camcorder if not you will be able to find it in the software Settings

If your PC does not have a card reader, you should be able to interface directly via USB or firewire cable to download files from camcorder.

Thanks all. Obviously the info I had was false. I look forward to a new camcorder

If it's a Analogue Camcorder you need one of these
