Capture Video Feature Freezes

Question

I am trying to move my video off my Sony Handycam 360x 8mm onto HD with 5GB free space on my IBM thinkpad T42. The TP is connected to a dazzle 100 using a s video cable. The dazzle is connect to the camera using the standard white, red and yellow cable. Capture setting is set at DV and input is set at composite video. I start the camera and then the capture now. the images being recorded will appear and appears to be in sync with that is on the camera. It lasts for about 5 to 10 seconds. After that the video capture freeze. The stop capture button does not work at this point. the only option left is go into task manager and kill the capture video process.

 

I tried changed the input setting to s video, but it only captures the image of what happens to be on my display at the time.

 

I realized when I decided to convert the 8mm to digital was not for the faint of heart and I was going to hits some bumps. However this is more than frustrating. I welcome any suggestions. Thanks

Looks like the setup may be wrong.

The camera should connect with the red and white to audio and the yellow to video out.You can also use the s-video out of the camera if it has it.

The Dazzle should connect to your computer with the USB input.Looks like this may be where your problem is.

 

I'm not at my machine with my capture device hooked up so I can't remember what the Input should say in Media Import.

Do you really only have 5GB free on your hard drive? If yes then you will not be able to do much at all in video work. Most of us recommend at leat 10-15GB free for any kind of reasonable work with video.

Also could you please list your system specs especially graphics adapter.
