      Please suggest the best way to transfer analog (8mm, vhs tapes) to a hard drive for editing. I tried transfering to a DVD and then importing to an editor but since the format was already changed to mpeg, the file size was too small to do much with. I have seen the pig-tailed usb 2.0 cords (svideo and rca plus in from camera) and box devices (Pinnacle has a couple different devices, anyone else have them?) that allow you to plug the rca cords into one side and usb from the other side into the computer. I’ve read the compaints of dropped frames, sped up playback, low resolution, etc. and would like to eliminate those problems as much as possible. Thanks.

      Search via Google for self-contained, or stand alone analog to DV converters – probably the most effective route.
