I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TRV98 and I'm trying to digitze my 8mm tapes using the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus. These are the slots on my camcorder (https://imgur.com/9gRtQ6M)
As you can see, it doesn't have all of the yellow, red, and white a/v out slots so I bought this cable (https://imgur.com/a/8wa2ItL)
When I connected the 3.5mm jack to the A/V out slot on my camcorder and put the red, white, and yellow cords into the Roxio Adapter, I wasn't able to get a video signal but I could hear the audio from the 8mm tape and it had a loud buzzing noise. I went to my device manager and saw that one of the 2 Roxio drives was corrupted. I found the source of the problem, and both Roxio drives were working. I clean uninstalled the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus to be sure, reinstalled, loaded everything up, and the same problem still persisted. No video signal with working audio but buzzing in background. To fix the video signal problem, I purchased an S-Video cable and connected it through the camcorder and the Roxio adapter. It worked, I could now see the video on the Roxio program but now there was no audio and a loud buzzing noise. When I unplug the S-Video cable, the audio comes back but with a loud buzz and no video signal.
I've tried EVERYTHING related to troubleshooting a buzzing noise. Updating audio drivers, doing a clean uninstall + reinstall of the Roxio program, switching to the generic audio driver, disabling audio enhancments, etc. None got rid of the buzzing noise.
The second I plug in a S-Video cable I can't hear audio and there's just a buzzing noise but I can't get video without the S-Video cable because the yellow video cord wont work so I can't go without it.
I need to find a way to get audio while using the S-VIdeo cable and have clean audio with no buzzing.
If this is of any use, here's the manual of my camcorder (https://imgur.com/Z2dCRxJ)
As you can see on the camcorder manual, it looks like the A/V inputs are just a yellow and black cord but I'm using an A/V cable with yellow, white, and red cords. Does this matter?
Somebody please help, this is driving me crazy.
