  • 1. can I use USB connection for MovieMaker?
    My JVC mini DV GR-D53AA has USB and Firewire output but my PC only has USB. Is there a way of using Movie Maker to capture and edit my movies via USB. The software supplied (ImageMaker) is not very user friendly but captures the taped movies via USB and lets me edit to a point but I cannot get it to put it all together...
  • 2. Installing drivers
    I need to download the following drivers for my IEEE 1394: 1394BUS.SYS DVCAM.INF DVCAM.SYS OHCI1394.SYS But when I try to download them myself by browsing in the "Update Driver" wizard in the Device Wizard, it searches the floppy where I have them but deems it "unrelated" to the hardware and therefore does not install them. HELP! How would I install them? -- -Kristine

I have a Dell Presarion 8200(?) .  Does it have an 
interface on the sound card ,or other cards, to allow 
connection of a VCR to the PC and read the tapes??

 A good video-card with video-in is the main card to worry
 about,then since vhs tapes need to be in a digitalized
 format you need the wmp9 series encoder.Actually you'll
 need the encoder to do audio and/or video,dwnload that
 with codecs and youre on youre way.

1.Capture VCR/VHS Tapes

I recently purchased a CISNET Media Center PC (2004) and I would like to 
convert my VHS tapes to DVD. I'm not seeing this as an option in Media 
Center so I'm assuming this is not directly supported and requires 
additional software. The computer came with Nero OEM package which I 
upgraded to version 6.

I have the Video/Audio out jacks on the VCR going to an Onkyo reciever IN 
jacks and then OUT to the Hauppauge Video/Audio IN jacks. The TV capture 
card is the Hauppauge PVR 250MCE. I can play vcr just fine, just cannot 
figure out how to record what is playing.

2.Ripping down VCR: VHS tapes..?

Perhaps a bit off topic but..

I was given the task of "ripping" home made VHS tapes to DVD. Is anyone else
doing this?  I had an older PVR-250 Haup. card that I'll connect to NOT my
MCE box, but rather my workstation. I've got the old Hap. "driver CD", but
slightly weary of depending on it and the bits on it to do this with least
amount of resistance.. (The PVR-250 was a "left-over" after I put a
PVR-150MCE in MCE box, which I won't experiment with for this specific

VHS-VCR -> PVR-250 -> PC

An attempt at a proper question:
Anyone bought "Sonic software" that would let me do this (DVD disc authoring
on a non-MCE workstation) and also create DVDs on the MCE box? (Possible TV
shows in the future and other digitized clips..)

4.Taping digital video edited on my PC onto a VHS video tape

I have connected my pc via an s-video out, "y" adapter audio cable and a 
scart adapter.  From the back of my PC the cables go into AV2 on my video, 
but I can not see my PC through the TV.  Do I need to change any settings on 
my PC or TV?  I am using XP Home and I have had a look in the display 
properties but can't see anything that would let me view my pc video on my 
TV?  Help much appreciated.

5.vhs to digital thru vcr and dv camera

I don't have a question. I'm just posting this in case it could help someone 
else and save them some of the time I spent learning it.

I have a super vhs vcr (JVC) and a dv camera (jvc-grd72).
I wanted to convert several of our old vhs tapes to digital and burn them to 
cd or dvd. All are analog and the quality is not that good.

I followed the step by step procedure in the dv camera book.
It seemed that the only way the capture would work was while it was in 
record mode. That is, play the vcr tape and while the camera was recording, 
the computer would capture also. I did this for several tapes. I then 
discovered that if you just take the tape out of the dv, and switch to play 
mode, you can still
capture without recording to dv tape. I had tried to do this with a tape in 
the dv camera, and every time I would click on the capture software to 
capture (MoviePlus 4 and Pinnacle Studio 9) it would change from the video 
that the vcr was playing and try to capture whatever was on the tape in the 
dv camera.
It does put the logo on the dv screen for no tape, but the capture will work 
without a tape in the dv.
Don't know how it will work on other models, but it could be worth a try. 
BTW, this is on a firewire connection.
