    Hi guys, I'm a total newb so please forgive. I have a Samsung VP-A30 camcorder with a av out (small yellow connector like headphones :blush: ) to phono video and phono mono sound out. How the bejesus do I connect this to a computer with Firewire and USB. My Radeon card won't except these. I've had a look on the Maplin site for some kind of Firewire to phono adaptors but no luck.

    Thanks in advance guys. :rolleyes:

    You need to get a capture card or an analogue/digital converter like the Canopus ADVC-100 you are not going to get a simple connector I'm afraid .

    I don't really know what your intentions are.

    If you want to edit your footage that you capture then you are going to want to have a converter that will capture good quality DV (.avi) files.

    That device looks like it captures MPEG-1 which will not be easy to later edit & is much lower bitrate & resolution than DVD.


    www.dvdrhelp.com is a site that you might like to do some browsing & research on before committing yourself.
