What equipment do I need to get quality transfer video from MiniDV tapes to PC hard drive? (Window 7)
You need some means of playing the MiniDV tape. I use a deck but you can certainly play it from your camera. You’ll probably need a fire-wire card in your computer for the camera to connect although you may be able to use RCA cabling from the camera to the computer’s video and audio inputs.
