Want to digitize tapes from my Samsung SCL860 Camcorder


Novice Member
My parents have an old Samsung Camcorder and it has no RCA outputs. There only seems to be a S-Video female port. I see many devices that can i can buy to digitize these tapes but without RCA outputs on the camcorder, I dont want to buy one until i know i can do this and how... Any help would be appreciated.

Google 'Samsung SCL860 manual/user guide' and you'll find this -

Item 28 refers - it'll look like a 1/8" stereo socket, so you'll need an A/V cable, which will (usually} have yellow, white and red RCA plugs on the other end, like this -

You'll then need a USB video capture device to link the camcorder to a PC. You can do your own research on that - it can be a minefield.

No mention of an S-Video out that I can see, and if there was, it's Video only - no audio, so you'd still need to capture the audio separately - hence the all-in-one A?V out socket.

Good luck!
