I am in the process of learning how to make football highlight videos. I purchased a hard drive camcorder and software to get started. I am comfortable with what I am doing so far when I am transferring from the hard drive to the editing software and going from there.

My question is this. How do I transfer VHS tapes that I receive from coaches and possibly DVD game tapes into my software. I tried hooking my connector cables up to my VCR and tried copying to my camcorder, but I am obviously not doing something right.

I am new at this, but very interested so I would appreciate any help you guys could provide.

Thank You.
