What camera(s) are you playing these tapes ?
You can connect the DV straight to your Win7 laptop with a firewire cable and use WinDV for the transfer.
If the Hi 8 camera does not play Digital 8 as well you would require a usb connection capture device or a Canopus ADVC to transfer these also as DV over firewire.
