    Please can anyone help. I would like to know how to get the film that is on the camcorder, on to a video cassette. Borrowed friends samsung digital camcorder for daughters homework but we dont know how to get it on video cassette. Seen it on tv but cant rtecord it. Sorry to sound useless but never worked one before. Tried downloading on PC but it says Windows XP is not compatable, so dont want to crash Pc.

    Kats18 - I'm no expert, but on my Sony camcorder there is a video and sound out socket that looks very similar to a headphone socket. You need a cable that goes from this to 3 phono plugs (1 x red, 1 x white and 1 x yellow). You then need a scart convertor that the phonos plug into to then plug this into the scart in the VCR. I got all of this free with the camcorder so perhaps the person you borrowed it from has the cables already??

    You then select the line-in or AV-in on your VCR and then record this way.

    oops, just re-read your post again and you say that you can already see a picture on the TV, therefore you must have a cable. Do you connect this cable into TV via a scart socket or via red, yellow and white phono sockets. If it is via scart you need to just need to plug this cable into a scart cable in the back of the VCR. If you are using the phonos you need a convertor to plug them into the scart
