Transferring Video From Old 8Mm Sony Camcorder To Dvd Using Roxio-Need Help Can't Get It To Work

Question

I have a sony NP-F330 camcorder which plays 8mm tapes, I have it plugged into the computer via lp port (using a svideo cables from camcorder to lp port in computer, with help of ATI TV Wonder 600 high speed usb. It has hookup for svideo into it then goes to lp port, which I plug into computer.)

 

With that being said when I go to roxio to try and do the capture video to dvd, it is not recognizing the camera is in the lp port. (Now i tried this with the software for the ati tv wonder-catalyst software-and it recognized it just fine, but for some reason wouldn't burn the disc after authoring them) I am not technically inclined and am just looking for an easy way to plug camcorder into computer and get these old 8mm tapes on DVD. I am feeling very overwhelmed with what I thought would be an easy task. I don't want to buy anything else if I don't have to would just like my program to recognize the camcorder in the port. Is that possible? Can I make this work or do I need to purchase another type of adapter to go from camcorder to computer?

 

Anyone with any help would be greatly appreciated as I am stressing out over this and being untechinical as I am I don't know what else to do.

Did you consider that the ATI device is NOT compatible with the Roxio software. Usually the devices have proprietary drivers that make them work with the included software. Yes, you might be able to find the Roxio capture device on something like Amazon. I'm not sure you can get it from the Roxio store. You can get it without software (except for drivers).

 

If you can capture using the included software to a standard AVI or mpg2 file, you can then use Edit Video-Advanced (Video Wave) to edit the footage and Create DVD to burn to a disc.

 

Don't get frustrated nothing in video editing and burning to a disc is easy or quick. It takes time to learn but after you do, it is very easy But not quick.

 

Have you looked at the Learning Center Videos under that tab on the Home page? There are also some good videos for Roxio on YouTube. Come back if you have any specific questions.

Is it possible to convert the old 8mm to DVD ???? , If Yes would any on like to guide me about it .

 

Thanking in advance.

 

I was going to delete the link and then tought that maybe you were legit. Your post has not been edited even though it say it was.

 

I ssume that you posted the link just to show what type of 8 mm you are talking about. If you actually posted that to drum up business, it will be deleted and you will be banned.

 

Google for the information; there is equipment that cost thousands of $$ down to using a video camera to capture the projection into a box. You would then also need to adjust the frame rates to be able to get a reasonable image.

 

The cost to commercially transfer 8 mm film to a digital file is very expensive. I would not use a site that had to drum up business by posting spam.
