How come my video gets jumpy when I transfer it to my computer but is fine on the camera?

Q: I’m transferring a home video to my laptop but a section of the video that plays fine in the camera viewfinder appears jumpy in the monitor and recording. The rest of the recording is fine, however, this section, even when I try to record just this bit on its own as a seperate recording won’t run smoothly. I’m using Roxio Easy VHS to DVD software and the Roxio video capture USB with a new modern laptop (Windows 7)
