Can get video signal but no audio + buzzing noise when connecting to camcorder

Question

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)9gRtQ6M.thumb.jpg.6882d25512e44bec2a1a74225f45e888.jpg

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)aPzD3iZ.jpg.fdb64b7a254d55434279f033988e118e.jpg

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)Z2dCRxJ.png.505d186b19c38b4670d99358d1d336f6.png

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.

If you need clarification or have any questions, please just ask me.

Thank you.

When using the S-video cable try using your A/V cable hooked up to the Roxio unit for Audio. It does not matter what color the leads are.

Yeah that's what I do. I connect the A/V audio cables to the Roxio while the S-Video is plugged in and it just plays a buzzing noise.

I'm not using a cord with a black sound cable. My cord looks like this https://imgur.com/a/8wa2ItL

I don't connect the yellow, I just connect the red and white and I still get buzzing. I also tried using just red or just white and neither worked.

You seem to have a cable with video and stereo audio. (4 connectors on the male plug)    Your camera manual shows a cable with single audio and video (probably 3 connectors?)

Take your manual to the shop and show it and the Roxio adapter and the camera to them, so they can sell you the correct type of cable/plug.

It worked! I bought a 3 conductor 3.5mm jack to 2 RCA male audio. When I plug the red audio in it buzzes but if I have just white in it plays with no buzzing. Thank you for the help!
