Hey all,

I have an old SHARP VL-E650U 8mm Analog Camcorder with a bunch of old family footage on it and I want to convert the footage from the tapes to digital.

I bought a 3.5mm to RCA cable, and then bought a Video Grabber tool (http://www.ezcap.tv/usb-video-capture/ezcap116-capture-card) that does RCA to USB.

ISSUE: When going from Camcorder > 3.5mm / RCA cable > RCA > USB video grabber, my computer picks up the audio feed from the digital camera but doesn't pick up the video feed.

To make sure it wasn't the RCA cable's fault, I did Camcorder > 3.5mm / RCA cable > Television, and the TV didn't recognize that there was an RCA cable plugged into it.

Not sure where to go from here and would appreciate any help.
