Hi, I'm a first time video editor and need some help please.
I have an old Panasonic VHS-C camcorder (PAL) and want to transfer the video to my hard drive, edit and then eventually copy it to DVD or VCD. I've just picked up a second hand Belkin DVD Creator which I believe is generically termed a video to analogue converter.
The Belkin lead has a yellow composite? phono socket and an S video socket at one end a USB at the other.
The camcorder only has yellow and white phono sockets.
The p.c. doesn't have S video or phono.
After checking the myriad of leads available from retailers, some of whom had helpful notes, it appeared that I could use a single phono to phono lead to connect the camcorder to the Belkin capture device.
My first attempts have colour picture but no sound.
Have I been a complete numpty and picked this up wrong? Do I need to use a yellow/white phono to s video or yellow/white phono to single phono lead.
Can someone clarify the single phono lead I'm using is fine (or not) or if this is a software issue (and if so how I might fix it)?
