I presume that your question is "Can I use this to copy movies from my camera to my PC?"
If so, then answer is probably Yes, but it depends upon your camera, the connectors, your PC, and the program that you'll be using.

We do this sometimes and it is very simple. All you need is a DVD Recorder and the VCR. Connect the VCR up to the DVD recorder and record the input from the VCR onto DVD. It is fairly simple to do and the sound and video quality is identical. :thumbsup: Good Luck!!!

I'm doing this right now using a Funai SV2000. It works great and does a better job than trying to capture with a computer. (22 hrs to render 2.6 gig video with a PC. I won't even mention the dropped frames.)

I Just use the VHS/UHF out from the VCR to the "Video in" on the DVR. (doesn't seem to work with the RCA jacks)

As stated above the quality is pretty darn good.
