I have a Canon ES7000V Hi 8 (8mm tape) Camcorder with an S video cable
hookup comming out of the same card as the monitor is hooked up to. My video
card is a Radeon 300x series. My camcorder also has an S Video port, however
when i hook them together the computer doesn't recognize anything.
What I want to do is record my 8 mm tapes to the computer so that I can burn
home movies onto discs.
What am I doing wrong? How do I get my computer to recognize that there is
an S Video hookup. Someone please help me!!

I believe your X300 card is Video OUT rather than Video IN. Check with the
specifications on the package.

If I'm right, then you'll need to purchase analog capture hardware.

Does this mean purchasing a new video card or a whole separate video card
for my computer?

Either something like an ATI All in Wonder card or card with VIVO (video in
and video out) or an analog capture card.
