    Hi Steve, and thanks for your response. I have noted these decks, and will look around eBay. Capturing form the Sony DCR-TRV320 camcorder works reasonably well. My oldest tapes date back to 1985, and although there are a few dropouts here and there, the quality is surprisingly good.

    Cheers,
    Karl

    One last post related to this thread: I discovered that Vegas 16 Pro will capture the video, but only to the C-drive.

    My C-drive is dedicated to the operating system. So this required quite a bit of experimentation to discover what the issue was.

    Cheers,
    Karl

    John & Francois — Thank you for your continued support here.

    I had tried Scenalyzer previously, but I had not had a key to the SW. Now with the SW key, based on a quick test of about 1-minute of video, Scenalyzer appears to work.

    LOL! One fellow in his garage (or attic) codes software, now eight years ago, that can capture video where Magix (Vegas) and CyberLink (PowerDirector) can’t. As a former software guy, it makes me laugh.

    So far, so good. I will see how far I can get with Scenalyzer, and report back.

    On a tangent, I suspect that my Sony DV camera is perhaps too outdated for the contemporary software above. Are either of you aware of any replacement hardware for playing back these Video8 and Hi8 tapes, that is compatible with Vegas 16 or PowerDirector, and also doesn’t cost $500?

    Thanks again. I knew Creative Cow would come through. Moo!

    Francois — Thank you for your response and for attaching the application.

    The application appears to be a video import utility (vs. a video tape capture utility). It is designed to import video files from data drives. (See attached screen shot.) It does not recognize the camera via FireWire for live video capture. I need to capture DV tape from the camcorder via FireWire.

    Either I am misunderstanding the application (possible; but I don’t think so)—or perhaps you uploaded the wrong app?

    Thanks again.
