I been trying to get my video footage onto my PC for a few days. I decided to record it on to my Camcorder(DV Tape) first. I connected the Camcorder (NV-DS38) to my VCR(SLV-SE810). I used a phono to AV on the camcorder but nothing seems to record on to the DV tape or even show up on the camcorder screen when i press play on the VCR? Im sure my camcorder had AV in and im sure my VCR had it out. It has 2 scarts and the phone holes at the fron too?
Any help would be great?
What kind of cable are you using to connect the vcr to the cam? There should be one that came with the camera.
yeah it is…it’s just AV one end and the Red,White and yellow the other end.
There’s probably a setting in the camera to tell it to accept analog input. Look for that.
There is a great saying in the world
If all else fails – read the instruction book!!!!
Sorry, do not have that model camera, but with the last three cameras that i have used I have read that through the “Menue” you must tell the camera to “copy” Once you have done your copying you have to turn that feature “off” otherwise you cannot record through the camera
I guess yours will be the same. Look for “video copy”
Now remember, the instructions books are delivered with your camera for a reason.
Just another thought.
Why do you want to record to DV tape first?
If you want to put it on the PC you can just run it straight from the VCR through the camera connections. The camera will convert the signal to digital format. Plug the firewire into the camera and PC and you will be able to capture without the need to copy it to DVtape and for goodness sake do not use USB connections from the camera to the PC – your just asking for problems
