    The ADVC-100 will not come with any software. It doesn't need any Windows will just see it as DV Camera/VCR.

    You need a firewire card (Apparently it has some problem with some older cards with Texas Instrument chipsets) in your PC & the ADVC-100 will act as a converting bridge between your analogue source & your firewire into the PC. (It can also go in reverse converting your digital on the PC to analog out)

    I just use my authoring software (Vegas) to capture (manually as it doesn't have device control like with a DV camera). Edit the captured files , encode to MPEG (with Canopus Procoder) & then author to DVD files (with ReelDVD or Pinnacle Impression Pro) then burn to DVD (with RecordNow Max)

    A cheaper option would be to install a USB2.0 PCI card (if PC does not already have USB2.0) for around £15 and then get a USB2.0 analogue capture device from companies such as Dazzle, Pinnacle, Belkin etc for around £50.
    I found these for somebody else on www.ebuyer.co.uk
