Various retailers offering camera accessories, such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and B&H Photo Video, sell mini DV cassette adapters. Mini DV players or combination players that play Mini DVs are also available for purchase.
Mini DV cassettes can be easily converted to digital format by connecting a mini DV camcorder with an input device capable of recording, such as a computer or DVD recorder. Firewire, HDMI, S-Video and RCA Audio-Video cables can be used for connection if compatible with both devices. After connecting, turn on both devices and process conversion by playing the cassette on the camcorder while simultaneously recording content as it plays to a digital file or blank DVD or VHS on the input device.
