Hello everyone, I'm trying to figure out what I should do. I'm not sure if there is a way I can transfer everything to my HP laptop, which already has a movie maker on it and an i.link, or if I should buy a capture card for my desk top and install that and try to transfer the video that way and just download a free version of windows movie maker and go from there. I just don't know what components I need and where to get started. If there is anyone else who has this camcorder and has been able to transfer the videos please let me know, I have lots of tapes I want to put on the computer and I'm very computer smart I just need someone to push me in the right direction. Any help would be very appreciated!!
