I used the Dazzle products and like that for the USB 2.0 devices you don't open the machine, but for 50 bucks the Hauppauge or ATI TV and capture cards are too cheap to ignore and do a good capture.
To place the video on DVD I use the software bundled with the DVD recorder.
I want to start to edit my 8mm video. Dell reccomended pinnacle products but online evaluations have been unfavoralble. It sounds like a lot of people like Canopus ADVC100 or a happague card. What are your experiences
