I have tried used the programs Windows Movie maker, and Studio 9 to capture videos from tape onto the computer so that i can edit them. However, i have a USB port and it the computer doesnt seem to register this. i followed all of the instructions and i still can't get it to work. If someone could help me or give me some instructions that are easy to understand this would be fantastic. Capturing a video shouldn't be this difficult.
Thanks a bunch, Kirby

That camera allows FireWire IEEE video transfer. This is what you use rather then USB (it is by far more preferable and less (no?) problems then USB), you can get a Firewire card for around $40.

this is what the firewire port looks like on the computer (you might allready have it):

so you will also need a cable that goes from that type to the other.
