    Hi,

    I'm new!!

    I would like to edit my VHSC tapes using pinnacle studio 9.

    However, my VHSC camcorder no longer works, so short of buying a new analogue camcorder, I wondered if I could hook up my VCR to the PC and use the VHSC converter and play as a video tape.

    Will this work, if so how do I do it and what cables do I need?

    I have firewire on the PC, I also have L & R aux in on my soundcard.

    Is there an analogue capture card thats cheap and good? The other alternative seems to be buy the more expensive Pinnacle software and bucks are tight!!

    I would like good quality if poss.

    I would be grateful for any help.

    Thank you

    Jaime

    You can connect your VCR to a PC with a 'PACKARD BELL PCI-TV100' capture card from www.pcworld.co.uk for £24.99 and this card has been highly recommended by many people on this forum. Just don't expect too much with the PQ as the origional VHSC recordings will be very poor compared to any other camcorders.

    Yes, the card & software are designed to capture live TV from an external source and display it in real time.
