This process might become complicated if you are transferring audio from a camcorder which does not support digital technologies and therefore this step would not be as easy to be achieved as if camcorder would directly transfer digital audio.
When we have audio or video which origin comes from a camcorder that doesn't support digital video, we would need an extra device to capture it before being able to transfer it to computer. This way, if we have analog audio and wish to capture it with computer converting it into digital, we would need to go through an extra step.
There are special devices which were specifically created with purpose of allowing its users to capture analog audio or video from their camcorders and turn them into digital compatible qualities. Once you have achieved this step, you could easily capture such digital audio or video with your computer same way you would have done from a digital camcorder.
