Can't Record Video Camera Stuff?

Question

Hey I bought this program because it said on the back supports most analog camcorders. But when I opened the package it doesn't give me the right tools to record. I can't even hook up the roxio usb and cables because both are negative(or positive, not really good with technology) I have a Sony AC-V25A video camera, which is from 1989-1991 anywhere in that time. It supports 8mm tapes and where I can hook it up to watch it to the tv it has 3 jacks. A yellow that says "video out" a black that says "audio out" and than a smaller hole in the middle that says "RFU DC out" Anyone know how I can record my tapes to the computer with this software?

The RFU is defiantly NOT what you want to use!

 

Your camcorder should have come with an adapter plugs that convert the little (3mm?) plugs into RCA Composite (Yellow/White/Red male) plugs at the other end...

 

Dig around in your stuff, it is the cable that would have connected your camcorder either to a TV or VCR ;)

 

Then the RCA plugs would connect into the Roxio Video Capture USB device.

Lol I told you guys I wasn't tech smart :P Well looking on the side it says Video Camera Recorder CCD-TR21. So I'm not sure if thats the model? I know I googled the AC-V25A and found an online instruction manual. And Jim I lost those cables many years ago. What we use to hook up to the tv is a adapter that came with it Kinda hard to describe but it says "Ant" and a "out" I know we hook the "out" to where the cable line goes into the tv. If I go out and buy RCA cables that are the same sided(Again either negative or positive on both sides) will that work?

Get a cable like this http://en.wikipedia....i/RCA_connector (available at Radio Shack/Amazon.com/Dollar store/Walmart). The cable that is shown in the link has 3 jacks on it, you will only use 2...the Yellow is the Video and you can use either the Red or White to connect the Audio, your old unit has only Mono sound not stereo.

 

PS

 

The CCD-TR21 is the battery for the camcorder. Do you not have a user manual for the unit.

 

Do you have a friend/neighbor/co-worker/kids that has some computer or electronics background that could come over and help you.

 

I would drop over but your in Manitoba and i'm in Ontario.

It is the plug that goes into the camcorder that will be interesting to locate...

 

Those in use today look like this:

Notice the insulators on the plug (3)! The single plug carries Video - Audio Left - Audio Right & Ground...

 

The one for yours would have had a single plug for the Video (yellow) and one for Audio (black or white?)

 

I would bet if you take it to a camera store, they can come up with the cord you need on the spot... Of course it will have to have the RCA plugs on the other end ;)
