I am happily copying from my mini dv camera to pc to dvd , but have loads of stuff still on 8mm tapes. I have copied them to VHS video , but would like to now back some of the data I have on these older tapes to DVD. (via my pc) I just wonder what is the best way forward. What is the best way to copy from my Sanyo 8mm camcorder (VM-RZ2R) to my pc . The connections on the camera appear to be AV terminals, with a yellow and a white single round ports. The cable I have to copy to my VHS video has a smart cable at the other end , so I guess thats no good for my pc. Do I need a video capture card ? I do have a firewire card / cable which I use for my mini dv. My other option maybe to copy from my VHS video recorder to my pc , but its nowhere near it , though I can play the videos onto a television which is in another room next to my computer , so could run cables if necessary. I know they may not be the bst , but I use Windows Movie maker to capture AVI from my mini dv , and Nero to burn it. I appreciate any help you can give to my queries - advice on both options would be greatly recieved , including any tips on which video capture card to buy if necessary . Cheers.
