well in order to do this you need a camcorder that has an *analogue* audio-video IN jack. not all have them . . . if it does have one, then you should be able to record from the VHS deck into the miniDV camcorder, and from there into the computer. i do this often with my sony trv 38, is one of the reasons I bought it.

if your handicam doesn't have that input, well, no real answer here. you'll need to get an analogue video capture card. last ditch desperation, you can "re scan" by pointing the handicam at a tv set playing the VHS footage-- not ideal, but should work in a pinch. - fj
