With digital camcorders you should be using a Firewire connection for capturing.

do you have a picture of what a firewire connection looks like? and is there any software you need to buy with the firewire connection or do you need to update or change anything on your computer with a firewire connection?

What model camcorder? Hi8 is not digital. Although a Sony D8 camcorder can playback Hi8. Here is what my Sony Digital 8mm port looks like. Firewire is the one on the left. Sony calls it iLink. Port on the right is USB.

 

 

it's a sony digital8 handycam (it also says steady shopt USB streaming on it) and it has a yellow plug in, and A/V and a DV plug in (the DV is the USB plug in) i'm not exactly sure if i'm saying all this right but i hope it helps.

How is the camcorder connected to the PC? What is your setup? Details please.

 

If you don't have a Firewire cable

Does your A/V cable (the one that goes in to the yellow port of your camcorder) has the RCA yellow/red (or yellow/white) cables at the other end? Do you have the Roxio USB Capture device?

Connect the A/V yellow plug to the yellow plug of the Roxio Capture device, and the A/V black plug to either red or white plug of the Roxio Capture device. Plug in the Roxio Capture device to the PC USB port (some members advise to use the USB port of the back of the PC). Turn on the camcorder and put the setting to playback the video. Once the Roxio Media Import program comes up, choose the USB 2861, and the Composite video as the input. Press the Play button of the camcorder. Do you see the video as well as hear the audio of the camcorder on the PC?

If your computer has a Firewire connection then use that and forget about capturing via USB.

BTW, don't rely on that list as being accurate, there are hundreds of devices that are not on the list and I am sure they work just fine with C2009. I have a Sony DCR-TRV33 and it works just fine using firewire.

I saw myguggi's post above but just to answer your question in case you end up using the Roxio capture device, here is an image (copied from a post of Jim Harding) on what the setting should be. If you have Firewire port on your PC as well, use the Firewire to capture video as sugested above by ggrussell and myguggi.

It connects directly to your computer, if you have a firewire input. You can check to see if the computer has one, two ways.

 

Either look at the back of your computer, or go to Device Manager, and see if there is an entry for IEEE 1394 Bus Controllers. If there is, the computer has a firewire input, most likely a 6-pin connection, unless your computer is a laptop. If it is a laptop, it more than likely has a 4-pin connection.

The Firewire connection goes from the camcorder to your computer. This will only work of course if you have a Firewire connection on your computer.

Firewire has been built into most machines for the past few years with a few exceptions. Most manufacturers use the 6 pin port except for Sony which uses the smaller 4 pin firewire like on the camcorder and laptops. I have the DCR-TRV740 and it works fine with C2009. Don't buy a real cheap firewire cable. Even Walmart has a decent Belkin cable at a reasonable price.
