Thread: Putting my 8 mm to my sony vaio

    Default Putting my 8 mm to my sony vaio

    I have a sony vaio laptopand i have like 12 hi8 tapes , I want to put in my laptop so, I can put them on my computer and burn then to a dvd.

    What is the best and hopefully the cheapest way to convert my analog tapes to digital via putting them on my vaio?

    Some say to buy a converter for $70 that has a RCA and USB ports and put the tapes in my analog camcorder and connect the RCA cables to it and connect the converter to the computer via USB-then transfer.
    But , I am thinking dont I need special software

    What is the best way to do this?

    Also, I am buying a Sony HC30, any opinions on it. I was thinking of getting the Camcorder Sony 101 but several people I taked said not to ,that I had more flexibility with the mini dv than the camcorder dvd.

    You could lawys look for online reviews, like this one

    Other than that, if it is your intention to edit your Cideo Footage on a PC, then I would go with a mini DV model.

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
    Sony TRV33e : Sony TRV310e : Canon XM2
    Sony Vegas Studio editions to v11

    Remember, there is always more to learn than there is to teach.

    Default I read the reviewnot too glowinf 4 the HC 30

    I wonder if the pros outweights the cons and if there is an advantage of having a sony laptop and a sony camcorder?

    the article recommends the panasonic pv-gs 14, any has opinions on it?

    My original question of transfering 8mm to laptop, i read that the sony hc 30 has analog to digital feature, can i do that with this feature?
