I am looking for a capture guide that details the proper steps to transfer hi8 to PC using the hardware I mentionned below. I have found guides but I just want to know what would be best for my handicam. I have around 36 hi8 tapes that I'd like to transfer to my PC.

My PC has the following specs:

windows 7
ivy bridge i5-3470 3.2 ghz cpu
16 gigs of ram.
3 terabyte drive (I can purchase more if needed)
PCI firewire card (VIA VT6306 card).

Sony digital 8 DCR-TRV520 handicam
This handicam has an ilink dv interface (firewire port), TBC, DNR.

I have been able to transfer video to my PC using a firewire cable and this sony handicam using windows movie maker. On a side note, what is a practical video quality size to choose when transferring video to my computer? I once transferred 30 seconds of video and the file amounted to 300 MB.
