hi all.
i have a old jvc camcorder which i have just dug out from back of wardrobe,charged batteries up and it is working fine,i have found a tape with my late fathers 80 birthday on it,can anyone tell me if it is possible to transfer this to my pc so i can copy it to a disc.camcorder has audio/video out connections and a editing lead/connection.your help and advice would be much appreciated.thanks.

If you have a DVD recorder, the easiest way is to use this to put it on a disc. If your DVD recorder doesn't have audio/video in you can get an adaptor to connect to a scart socket click here You can then transfer it to PC for editing if needed.

Can you get hold of an edit lead. I used to transfer from my old JVC with no problems straight into Windows Movie Maker.

hi kevscar,i have a edit lead that came with the JVC,this has a small type jack plug on both ends,how would this connect to pc,did you have same lead or did you use a adaptor of some kind.

If so look for the corresponding port on your comp.

kevscar thanks for the link,my camcorder does not have a firewire connection.it only has the jack type socket and audio/video connections.looks like mine is older model than yours.thanks.
