    Hi i have a DV cam that i just bought which is a JVC model number.
    GR-DVL1020EA. I am wondering what do i need to put the video (tape) into my computer. Obviously i would have to change analog to digital, but what software/hardware do i need?

    I know a bit of encoding e.g. DIVX or XVID, but im still a bit blur on analog to digital. pls help..

    cheers....

    use the firewire port link on the camcord and hook it up to your box, and use adobe premiere to capture it.
