Creator 2012 Pro And Sony Hdv Handycam Hdr-Hc1

Question

What should I do now?

 

I just installed Creator 2012 Pro this weekend to help my daughter get her video project done for school. The camera is the SONY HDV Handycam HDR-HC1 (aboout 5 yrs old and uses Hi 8 digital tape) The camera has a HDV/DV port (which is 1394 or iLink in sony lingo) but it does not support video to the computer according to their help people. I also have the Roxio Video Capture USB but the camera does not have S video or the RCA ports/jacks. My laptop is a Lenovo ideaPad with Win 7 home premium but no 1394 port...of course! I got nowhere but frustrated and burned the whole weekend unable to accomplish the video transfer. Does anybody have any advice on what the heck to do next?

 

Thanks

Which IdeaPad? Did yoiu check ot make sure that it exceeds the minimum requirements for the program?

 

I think that you can buy an express card that gives you some firewire ports if you don't have them.

Thanks Jess, that backs up what I had found ;)

 

Find the RCA adapter cable that came with your camcorder and you will be able to capture DVD quality with your Roxio USB Device.

 

IF you want to capture the HD that it has, then we are going to have to go shopping together... I Point, you Pay :lol:

Thanks guys for jumping in so fast!

 

I think my confusion is that I am missing one key cable... but I'm not sure. I think I must have Sony's ilink USB cable...because I do not have an 13994 port on my laptop and I see no way of connecting the Roxio vido capture USB to the camera. Does this make sense to you?
