    I have got an Analogue Camcorder Samsung VP-W60 , which I have had for along time now but never used it ...
    Can anyone tell me if I can connect this model to my PC or Laptop to see, capture and edit from it? or not ?
    If so what do I need to get to possibly achieve this ?? ... IE drivers software etc?? Thanks

    Hi Steven, you will need a video capture card installed in your PC, probably best to get one that captures the audio as well. I think Maplin may be your best bet, but I'm sure someone else will know the best place to get one. Hope this helps and good luck :smashin:

    It all depends on how much you want to spend and how good quality you require as to how you go about this.

    There are many devices that plug in to a PC/laptop via USB2.0 that do work but are fairly low quality. The advantage is they are also cheap costing from around £20 up.
    The best quality devices are those that connect via firewire such as the Canopus ADVC devices. They will give results as close to capturing from a digital camcorder as you can get with analogue. The down side being they cost from about £150 up. The more expensive units in the range give you analogue outputs so you can copy your edited footage to VHS etc.

    Mark.
