I am trying to capture some VHS tapes onto my PC (to burn to DVD).
I have connected my VCR to my Sony DCR-IP7E Digital camera. This part seems work fine i.e. when I play the VHS tape, the audio and visual play on the camera.
I can also connect the camera to my PC with the firewire cable, and can capture footage from the microMV tape using Movieshaker.
My problem is that I cannot seem to connect all 3 together and capture the VHS onto my PC using the camera as a pass through. As soon as I connect the firewire to the camera, I loose the picture/sound from the VHS.
Is it that I am attempting something impossible?? I know that I can record the VHS onto the microMV tape, and then capture it to PC, but really wanted to do it in one go.
Thanks for any help.
