Was told to purchase s-video and that would allow me to transfer my grandson's 2nd b-day party movie to my laptop to burn to dvd using Windows Movie Maker. Laptop nor Movie Maker recognize the "video capturing device". video camera=JVC GR-SXM37 and laptop= Toshiba Satellite A105-S4114 and Movie Maker= v 5.1. OS=XP. I don't want to have to use the VHS adapter and go thru TV to burn to DVD. Please help this ol' grandma figure this out. Thx

I have a strong suspicion that your laptop's S-video socket is an output only. i.e. to move image of your lapto out, like onto a TV).

Is there a way to transfer from movie camera to the laptop? Camera has s-video and rca type jacks (white & red) and the laptop has s-video, and usb and some other jack I don't recognize the size/shape of next to the s-video on the laptop.

You mention a capturing device not being recognized. What type is that. Is it an external "little box" where camera goes in and cables can be inserted that go out to PC?

try this link. They have adaptor boxes where you camera's S-Video can be connected and the boxes go to the laptop via USB. Software comes with it.
