    Hi.

    Anyone please tell me how to connect one to the other.

    My out from a digital camera, cannon A60, has a video lead, which would go into the TV, this is a RCA type I think.
    I wanted to plug this into the TV card input which is fine because i can use the in on the card.
    But the sound out from the camera is also RCA and that wont go into the line in as that is a jack type.
    Is there a convert i can use to change it.

    I tried to use a microphone into the line in but it wont work that way.

    Thanks

    I take it you trying to plug the lead in to a TV card on a computer? if so why don`t you just download the clip via the usb lead?

    I must be missing something sorry

    Re above.

    There is no USB lead
    The camera just had the video RCA with it.
    I can get the picture but no sound

    Or are you saying i can buy a USB lead to do this.

    I believe what ontheline needs is a single convertor for:
    female RCA to 3.5 mm mono/stereo jack.

    That way the RCA output from the camera can be plugged into the line in socket on the sound card.

    There should be a USB lead with the camera that lets you transfer pics/movies to the PC. If it's not there then the A60 package is incomplete - check the instructions.

    P.S. I used to own a A70 - now upgraded to A80.
