    Default How do I connect my camcorder to comp?

    My camcorder is

    JVC GR-SXM87ED

    I want to connect it to my computer so I can get my old videos on to it. My computer dosent have a s-video port. What cable do I need? Also when I do get the cable what do I do then?

    Here is the link from the manual for this camcorder,

    You would need either a firewire cable or USB.. Firewire is better but since its an older cam it might only have USB. I never used windows movie maker which you should already have if you use windows. Im guessing it can capture with both, but someone else that knows will probably post.

    I dont have a video capture card so could I use this cable?

    Would this work?

    that should work.

    it is unfortunate that i can't find any spec's or manuals for that camera. are there any ports on it at all.
