Yes. Your sound card must have the proper inputs for this. Talk to the folks at the computer stores. Talking is still free !....BB You need a video capture card to convert the analog signal from your VCR to digital. These capture cards range quite a bit in quality but are readily available online and in computer electronics stores. However, if you are transferring home movies I recommend using a video transfer service so that you get the best quality. StashSpace.Com does a good job, lets you edit online before burning DVDs and is only $6.95 a tape.

Can you use maxell cassette adapter VHS c to convert video 8 P6-120MP tapes to VHS or DVD?

NO you cannot. AS video8 is digital and VHS is analog so they dont work together. The adaptor will only work with VHS-C tapes. What I would recommend is using a video transfer service to convert your video 8 tapes into a digital format. Watch and edit the digital files on your computer or get the tapes transferred to DVDs. StashSpace.Com does a good job at this, costs $7 for the transfer to digital and $10-15 for DVDs.

Do you have any DVD recorders in the modern time out in the stores that you can use to download any of your old VCR tapes besides recording tapes on DVD disc?

VHA tapes are linear, analog recording systems. There is no way to download anything from VHS tapes other than by playing the tape and capturing the content using another recorder such as a DVD recorder. The quality of the recording will remain a typical VHS quality but once the content is captured in a digital format, it can be loaded on to a computer and possibly enhanced to eliminate some of the usual problems of VHS quality.

Can you transfer a video from a video tape on a TV to a computer with Windows Movie Maker?

Probably not. WMM is made to import footage using conventional "digital video cameras" but not analog tapes that are hooked up to VCRs. My family uses something called Dazzle to convert our old tapes, however, so that's something you could look into. Always Google in life!

How can you transfer a video camera recoreder tape to a PC?

You are reffering to VHS tapes which play in a VCR. They are analog so you need a special device to convert the tapes to digital. They sell video capture cards so you can do this yourself at home but I suggest using a video transfer service for the best quality and least amount of hassle. StashSpace.Com is a good one. Costs $6.95 per tape for the transfer. Check them out online or give them a call.
