  1. Hi :)

    It MUST have a connection...

    The two most common are Firewire or USB... ???

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Firewire is very common on camcorders and cards are readily available. Try to get one that is based on Texas Instruments chips if you decide to go that route. In my experience they work the best, esp with JVC camcorders.
  3. Yes you can use a TV tuner with a RCA input for capturing the video. But why get a TV tuner to get the job done when you can just get a USB RCA video capture card?
  4. my camera is samsong scl810 it has only one slot for a cable ... this cable ends with audio and video jacks...there is no other usb slots or cables!!

    ps: what about the tv-tuner is there a separate device for laptops or is there any other mean to connect the camera with laptop and record my tapes on the laptop?!!
  5. I guess I will have to do the work for you.

    You will need something like:

  6. you need a video capture device with a USB interface for your laptop and s-video/composite ports to capture videos off your camera? The Easycap is readily available most parts of the world ^^
