Best Answer

You need video editing software and a way to get the images into the computer. As an 8mm camcorder has only an RCA Composite output, this will require you to have a comparable input on your computer. You use the camcorder to play the tapes and input them into the computer. It will be necessary to purchase and install a composite video input card.

How do you get videos from your camcorder to dvds?

The best way is to download them onto a computer, equipped with a DVD burner. The video can then be edited properly and then burnt to a disc. The computer needs a video capture card or dongle, which are often bundled with appropriate editing software. The cables then connect between the capture card and the camcorder, simply play back the material whilst watching on the computer, until the capture is finished. Alternatively, you can just hook up the output of the camera to a DVD recorders inputs. Play back the recording on the camera and hit record on the DVD recorder. You will only get a copy of the unedited material this way. It all depends on the sort of camcorder. I presume it uses tapes. Other types record onto memory sticks or mini discs. A memory stick recorder is simpler, as the files can be uploaded to a computer easier.

How to convert Hi 8 and 8mm tapes and VHS tapes to DVD?

You can do this yourself if you have the right equipment or you can send it to a tape to DVD conversion service. I recommend using a tape to DVD conversion service. You will get the best quality and it will be the least hassle. - In principle it's easy, provided that you have (a) an "old" camcorder which can play your Video 8 / Hi 8 tapes/ VHS tapes, and also (b) a digital camcorder which can accept as input the analogue output from the "old" camcorder and produce digital output ("DV Out"). If you do have such equipment, the digital camcorder might either create a digital version of the footage (e.g. a mini DV tape) or it might be able to "pass through" so you can store the digital version straight to a PC or a DVD recorder. If you put it onto a PC, you can then (optionally) edit it it and then burn a DVD. I have done this myself using a Canon MV750i camcorder as the "pass through", but unfortunately the camcorder has just broken so I'm looking for another model which has this facility (it's probably cheaper to replace than repair). Does anyone know of a reasonably priced mini DV camcorder which offers this? If you don't have the digital camcorder described above, you'll need to find a device which does the conversion or alternatively install a video capture card in your PC. Whatever else, you'll obviously have to have something that plays the old tapes (the "old camcorder" referred to above). Plus you need a powerfull enough computer to handle the real time capture of the video.

Are CDs DVDs and tapes examples of software?

Put simply no. CDs, DVD's and tapes are things used to store the data that makes up software. Admittedly new software these days tends to come on CD or DVD, so this is an easy thing to confuse. In the early days of computers, when people had to invent new words to describe specific concepts, the words "Hardware" and "Software" were brought into common use. The Hardware was the physical devices and items that made up the computer. While the Software was any program that runs on the computer.

Converting VHS tapes to DVD can be done by first connecting the VCR to a camcorder using a cable with three plugs on each end or a cable with three plugs on one end and one plug on the other, depending on the number of inputs on the camcorder. When the VHS tape is played, it can be recorded by the camcorder onto a miniDV tape. Then the contents of the miniDV tape need to be downloaded to a computer, and then burned onto a DVD.
