Re: How do I transfer video on tape to my comp?
you need to tell us what kind of tape. would be helpful if you told more of what you were trying to accomplish.
if source is MiniDV, then yes, firewire out from handicam to a firewire in on computer.
if source is VHS, you will need some kind of video capture card.
OR you can record it from VHS deck into a miniDV cam and then xfer if from there via firewire. you can't go from a VHS player to a computer via firewire.
