  • ADVC300 to Windows 10 Lenovo Laptop help

    I bought a Canopus ADVC300 long ago to transfer family VHS tapes to digital format. Time has passed and tapes have unfortunately degraded and I'm finally ready to transfer. I can't figure out what cable I need to connect to my laptop.

    This is the laptop I have:

    Any advice on software would be greatly appreciated too.

    Go easy on me - I'm a novice at this and learning!

    Thank you in advance.

    ADVC300 uses a FireWire connection to the computer. That laptop doesn’t have a FireWire port from what I can see, so there is no way to connect it to the laptop.

      Does it have a Thunderbolt port? If so this might provide a solution (once you get past the ads).

      Some older laptops had PCMCIA card slots that could take an IEEE1394 port card.

        Good point Don, I never thought about the thunderbolt option. I usually don't think of thunderbolt with Windows since it is not extremely common and early incarnations of it have been a bit flaky, but according to the spec on that system it does list a thunderbolt 3 port.
