Need help with rs-232c cable to pc hook up

By gargoyle661 ·
I came up on a samsung svr 1620 16 channel security video recorder with no program disks. works/records great and want to use it. It has a rs-232c conector and I would like to conect a pc/laptop to transfer the stored data for edditing.I use this for paranormal research . I will be recording over and over again I need to figure out how to retrieve my information to load it to my pc and pull out the few seconds I will need. I am at a stump. Anyone who can help me figure this one out I would be greatly appretiated.

The cable is basically an expensive seriel cable http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/341495-REG/Hitachi_RS232_CABLE_RS_232C_Serial_Mouse_Control.html
then you will probably need to convert it to USB..

This is a hack job, in no way shape or form would I support it... but its got about a 1 in 100 chance it will work.

But apparently that model has a removeable hard drive slot, and a built in NIC... I might look into those routes before you attempt the hack job...
