hi, i have purchased a good quality sharps vl a10h 8mm camcorder, the problem is playback is thro a cable with 2 phono jacks one yellow and one white which should connect to the tv, my question is, can it be modified to playback thro a usb2 port and would it need a driver, then i could burn the video to cd, my laptop is a toshiba 1800s/254 with 1ghz and 256 ram dvd rom cd rewrite cheers

Those cables are for composite output.

They can connect to a VCR or any other device with connections for composite inputs (VCR, TV, etc.). An example of such devices is http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/P...VD+Recorder.htm

Note: I am not suggesting, recommending, or endorsing said product...just providing an example of a device which will accept inputs from RCA plug composite sources.

IMO, no system with 256 MB of RAM...can do adequate video processing of any type.

That's a PIII processor, right?
