Yes 1. If you have IEEE 1394 (FireWire/i.LINK) on both Camcorder and Laptop.

Yes 2. If the above is a No No, there is always this Click here it's called Honestech VHS to DVD Deluxe, The Box connects to Laptop with USB 2.0, The Video from the Camcorder connects to the Box with RCA Plugs for composite video (yellow) and stereo audio (white and red), Ignore the term VHS as any Video signal (Inc. Betamax or TV out) will do..

This Click here is the honestech VHS to DVD 2.0 Deluxe User Guide in PDF Form, I have been using it since 2007, Works a treat.

Info for Honestech VHS to DVD 5.0 Deluxe Click here

It's cheaper from Maplin £29.99 (was £49.99)..

Any questions, Just Ask..
