My parents (yes! I am a teenager!) had a 8mm camcorder (Many, many years ago!) and now they have a lot of 8mm tapes with precious and adorable memories... So, as i am the video maker of the family, (i think that) is my responsability to recover these memories!
I have a HP Media Center m8034n with a yellow, white, and red (i dont remember the name of that cable) input, so I was thinking that maybe i could use this input to somehow transfer the videos in 8mm to my PC and then, after some editing, burn a DVD with the videos!
Just a small detail: I dont have any idea how to do this, and i need help from you guys!
PLEASE, i really dont want my family spending hundreds and hundreds of bucks only to put some old videos into DVDs....
So, if yous guys have any info about this, i would be really thankful!
P.S.: My parents still have the 8mm camcorder (i am shocked, too), so if i need the camcorder to transfer the video to my PC, its ok.
P.S.S: I really dont know how to use the yellow, white, and red input, so if you guys know how to use it (like to connect a DVD player to my PC, or something like that...) i would be really glad if you could teach me how to use it...i dont have a software or anything like it, but i do have the Windows Media Center (of windows vista) if it can help...
I know that i probally wrote a lot of idiot things, but i am really new into this movie making thing.... :)
Thanks for all the help,
