    What make of analogue camcorder do you have that has a USB port on it? Switch the camcorder into playback mode or VCR mode, I believe what you have is the camcorder is still in record mode and you are getting a 'live feed' through the lens, is this correct? In playback or VCR mode you can use the camcorder the same way as a VCR with play, stop, rewind, FF etc. And use the desktop PC to do your video capturing as most laptops aren't powerful enough to do it. Defragment the hard disk and turn off screensavers and disable anti virus software for the duration of the video capture, unless you are connected to the Internet permanently and it is unsafe for you to do so.
