How to Connect MiniDV and Hi8 Camcorders to a PC

This is the best way to connect your "old" format camcorders to a computer so you can upload and play the footage digitally.  I am sure you recognize the familiar red, white and yellow cable connections.

              Avid Technology Dazzle DVD Recorder HD V14.0

Most camcorders ship with that RCA cable so you can connect your camera to a TV or VCR.  But computers don't have an RCA connection.  This contraption allows you to plug the red, white and yellow end into the Dazzle and the USB connection into your computer. DVD burning software comes with the Dazzle so you can send your camcorder footage directly to DVD. But I use it to capture my footage and then edit it using my video editing software. Either way, it is in your computer! People constantly ask me how to transfer old footage to a computer and this is the best device on the market.
