James your new system seems neat so it will be worth the effort, I have been setting up to do some video filming and I have bought a new Sony Camera to do it and that all worked very well but the SDHC64 gig chip in the camera, well my quad4 computer won't have anything to do with it so I can't copy the files over, yet, so it looks like computers are like woodworking, a lot of fun but there are time when it is not that funny. N
The main reason I wanted to upgrade my system is that I do a bit of video editing.

Nothing serious, but I mainly convert VHS tapes into .avi or .mpg files for friends.

I also use a small video camera (Sony HDR-CX190) to take video. I also use my Canon Powershot SX120 IS for some video.

Have not tried the Iphone yet, but that is on the cards.

I was using Pinnacle Studio 12 on the lap top and that worked OK as long as I turned off the MS One Note icon on the system tray.

The upgrade to 8GB ram should help as well as the extra CPU speed.

I also have Sony Movie Maker 12, but do not use it as I am happy and familiar with Pinnacle Studio.

I use a Pinnacle Dazzle to convert the VHS signal into digital and store on the laptop and PC.

To transfer files from the Sony, I remove the SD card and insert it into the card reader on the laptop. I then manually transfer the files into the directory I want.

The camera was a gift from my old employer when I retired.

I only use 16GB cards with the camera and they have worked well on both trips to the US.

16GB gives 3 hrs of video.

I don't think the Sony is actually set up to transfer the video files from the camera to the PC via USB cable.

Pinnacle Studio 12 will not work with Windows 7, so I have been using Vista on the laptop.

I have upgraded to Pinnacle Studio 14 for using with Windows 7, and this works well on the new system.

What model camera do you have?

Any way I can help, just ask.

James that is very nice of you to write all that down, I have not been editing anything yet and Pinnacle was one of the programs that I was looking at, I did a miss type yesterday as the chip I have is a series10 SDXC64gig not a SDHC64 and I was intending to just put the card into a SD reader and copy the video files over but the very major hardware supplier (think Jerry), well I got the camera from Jerry, well Jerry's staff did not tell me some very important information and that is that I should not have bought the chip if my computer was more than 2 years old as it would not be able to read the chip, today I bought a XC USB 3.0 SD reader and it did not work so after a few days now of looking for a way forward then that is a fact, my computer will never be able to read the chip, very disappointing, I could have bought the camera and the chip online and saved a lot of money but I thought that I needed to get it from a trustworthy source and not from a nasty online source, so much for what I thought. Anyway the camera works great with the chip and I have been thinking about getting a new computer anyway, I have some filming to do and that should work, I will just have to wait to edit it. Still thanks for all that useful information. Just to keep the post in line with the forum rules then can anyone advise me as to which router cutter will fit into a Sony Camcorder, and at what speed should I insert it? please. N James the camera is the CX220E, looks a lot like yours.

No forum rule in the lobby, Neville.

No need to cut into your camera with a router..........LOL

Cheaper to buy a 16gb card and see how that works.

Hmm. wish someone would of told me... been running Studio 12 on Win 7 for years Well, a couple of years anyway!

Actually to be more accurate, I am running Studio 12.1... may have been an update that allowed it to run on Win 7. Don't remember! Thinking hard about upgrading to 17. Had every version from 8 to 12.

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Hard to keep up with all the updates, isn't it Duane?

I have also been using Studio since 8 and find it very easy to use and powerful enough for my purpose.

I was using 12 on the HP lap top with Vista and when I upgraded to Windows 7, I had problems,so I went back to Vista.

I went to buy the latest version at that time, which was 14. To buy a stand alone copy of 14 was over $A110. I saw a box with Pinacle Dazzle, including a copy of 14 for around $A80.... So even though I already had one of their earlier analogue to digital converters, I bought that.

Dazzle Video Creator Platinum HD: Pinnacle video capture & video editing software

The Dazzle works well in transferring VHS tapes to the computer for editing.

james I needed the 64gig chip as it will record HD for many hours without stopping, the cameras battery will not run that long so I bought a 240 volt USB power supply to power it for the long runs, I needed to be able to record for up to 5/6 hours and the 16gig chip wont do that, and the camera will be up to 3 meters high so changing the chip would be difficult, I am looking forward to having the new computer so not that bad but it would have been nice if Jerry's salesman had of said that the chip cannot be read on any computer older than a few years, it seems that I need a 64bit system to read it. And I still have to test those editing programs so Pinnacle will be on that list Neville

Neville, if you want a good system, do not go to Jerry's store. Try your local PC sales/repair shop.

They can build a clone very cheaply (good brand name parts).

My new system was only $625.00 as I already had a monitor.

Jame the only thing I really buy from Jerry is a thing where I want reliable warranty so I got my new printer from Jerry for that reason, I did see the camera on many sites where it was cheaper and I also saw many chips that were also cheaper but I bought it from them just to get reliable advice and see how that worked out, Jerry will not see m again very soon, about my new computer, I will buy all the parts and put it together myself as I have done that before and I do have someone who I can call on if I get stuck, there is a PC warehouse at Silverwater and they sell and the best named parts, I prefer Gigabyte boards and and In will use a solid state 250gig main drive and 8gig ram, I also need a big powerful power supply as I have a pile of hard drives, I remember when I had 1 meg of ram and a 40 meg hard drive and I was happy, now hard drives are never big enough still I am not unhappy about the new system as I have thought about doing it for a long time, I built my first one after I went to the North Rocks Computer market and the stacks and racks and tables of parts had me leaving empty handed until I saw an old old man walking out with a bag of parts and I said to myself if that old goat thinks that he can put it together and it will work then I can.

I got my system from Arc Computers, who have several stores around Sydney.

I note they are at Silverwater and Penrith.
