    I also have tried with the EasyCap VHS to DVD which also was a failure. The main problem is the computer does not recognise camera. Is there a fitting Firewire to USB coverter which will compatiblle with the Windows 7 ?.

First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

If the camcorder has analog AV output capability, you should be able to plug tour camcorder into the media projector without needing the laptop.
