[qanda]This thread is about the Sony Camcorder CCD-TRV 228. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Help!
my boss has a 60 minute video cassette tape she wants to be made into some nice video for Marketing. We have an older camcorder, Sony DCR-TRV27 and i am trying to upload the cassette to my hardrive with the only thing provided which is a USB cable. The quality is awful. When i look at the tape on the camcorder it looks clear and wonderful but download it and it looks like s**t. I have heard of firewires but it seems my camcorder does not have a place for that. I am using Ulead 11 video editing and can get really good clips from our other camers, Sony HDR-SR11 but of course that camera will not play cassettes.
Is there any hope for me to get a good video out of this tape? I called a few camera places and they have no idea of what to do.
