How Can I Transfer Video To My Computer Using The USB Connection?

Last Update Date : May 16. 2018

Video from your camcorder can be transferred to your computer using the USB or DVI connection.  The quality of DVI video transfer is better than USB, however, USB transfer doesn't require the installation of any add in cards nor is it necessary to purchase additional software.  The ULEAD software provided with your camcorder will allow you to transfer video from your tape to your computer in just a few short steps.

Before Transferring Video:  To use USB streaming, the DV Driver, Video Codec and DirectX 9.0. programs must be installed in the PC.  Insert the disc into the CD-Rom drive of your PC.  Follow the steps for installing the driver and then install the ULEAD software.  

  1. Open the ULEAD software.
  2. Rewind or Fast Forward the tape to the position you want to transfer from.
  3. Connect your Samsung camcorder to your PC using the USB Cable Provided.
  4. Set the mode switch on your camcorder to TAPE and turn the power on.
  5. Click the CAPTURE tab on the ULEAD software.  It should be the same or similar to the image below.
    If the drivers have been properly installed, the Source field should show your Samsung Camcorder.

  6. Press PLAY on the Camcorder and Click CAPTURE VIDEO on the ULEAD Software.
  7. When the video is through transferring, or you've transferred up to the point that you want, click STOP CAPTURE on the ULEAD software.
  8. Click the SHARE tab on the ULEAD Software and select the format you want to render the video in.

For more information on Video Transfer and Video Editing, view the attached Ulead Manual or visit the ULEAD website where you can browse tutorials, read FAQ's and request Technical Help.
