Vhs To Dvd Conversion Using Creator 2010 Se?

Question

I've been surfing around for over an hour looking for basic instructions on how to convert VHS "home movie" tapes to a digital format.

 

So, I'm lazy. I bought Creator 2010 with the Video Capture USB about two years ago, and just opened the package today. The software installed on my Dell Studio laptop running Win 7, but the instruction manual and as far as I can tell, the Roxio website, are silent on what to do to hook up an old video cam (Sony Handycam Vision CCD 2RV25 NTSC) to effect the conversion. It looks as if the inclusion of the Video Capture USB was an afterthought; they threw in the device and that was it!

 

I have several questions. First, although the Roxio device is recognized by Windows 7, it's not showing up as a source option for video conversion in the "Copy and Convert" window. Second, even if it did, it's unclear how to adjust settings to make the conversion happen intelligently. How does one best set file size options, for example? Finally, both the old videocam and the VCR I happen to have hung onto only have one audio output line, not the two on the Roxio gizmo. How problematic is this?

 

If anyone out there can give me a hand with this, I'd appreciate it. Happy New Year!
