      There’s probably a setting on your camera in the menu that allows for A/V input. The first step is to get the picture from your vcr to the camera. plug the vcr into the camera and hit play, then go to the camera menu and play around until the picture shows up (you will probably need to be in play mode on the camera). Once you have that working, you can then worry about the firewire connection to your computer and captuing. Read your owners manual if all else fails to figure out how to get it to record A/V

      thank you very much for your quick reply but i am still stuck. There is no option of that sort. I have tried reading the manual and no help there. Is my cam even capable of this? this is the manual http://books.jvcservice.com/download/158377476/21209.pdf

      Looking at the manual, it looks like your camera doesn’t do A/V input otherwise know as passthrough. That’s too bad. You will need to find a camera that will, or get a breakout box for your pc that will accept composite video, and RCA L and R audio. Sorry to bear the bad news.

      Thanks
