I got a video camera the other day. Is there anyway to transfer the video files off the tapes in the camera to the computer. Thanks

I'm having the same problem your having. I think they have a cord that will hook up to your cam and to the pc. Or, they make digital camcorders.

the best thing to do when you edit it is to use Windows Movie Maker (should come with most versions of XP). its really easy to use.
