No VIdeo detection using VIDEO INPUT 2" with SONY VAIO and Sony vi

I have a 1999 SOny analog Hi-8 tape video camera. I am trying to get the
video into the movie maker but it says it doesn't recognize any video source.
I plug the yellow plug from the camera to the yellow plug in the front bottom
of the SONY VAIO, and do the same for the audio. I am using RCA plugs
I am completely stupid with all this. I am 64 and don't speak your language.
Can somebody tell me what to do? I have about 50 of these 8mm tapes of my
children that I want to put ov DVD and bought this exspensive SONY computer
just for that reason. I was told it was easy to put analog tape movies into
this computer and then make DVD. So far, I can't even get the camera hooked
in right. Will some young person help me.

Does your computer also have Y, R&W RCA connectors on the Back? If so try
them.

It would be even easier to hook up a cheap DVD recorder via the s-video & audio outputs of your
camcorder. Press <RECORD> on the recorder & then <PLAY> on the camcorder.
