Hey All,

I have been given the job of transferring the video recordings from an old Digital Video Camera which takes tapes!!

I do have the cameras AV Cable which allows it to be plugged into a TV, via the yellow and white / red cables, but i am wondering how i can use this cable to capture the video on my computer? Is there some usb device that does this or am i going to need a pci card?

I know absolutely nothing about video / audio and am out of my depth here :p i just hope i can find a solution so i dont let the client down,

Thanks in advance for any help :) xx

get a haupauge video capture card and then you can use AVS4YOU software that's cheap to do it. They're running a big sale right now on it too... (My link gets you a discount)

Thanks for that, sorry to be a pain in and ass but could you link me to a capture card you would recommend? It would need to be PCI-E

Why don't you just order the one you found for that price and see how it works.. You might be surprise and save a few bucks, if works like crap - then your out what the cost of a beer ;)
