Buy an inexpensive Digital-8


Buy an inexpensive Digital-8 camera on eBay. Go from your VHS player into the Digital-8 camera via SVHS, out of the camera into your computer via firewire, as Mike indicates. Passing the VHS signal through the Digital-8 camera digitizes it. It doesn’t matter whether or not the camera is in working order for taping; all it’s doing is creating a digital signal for your computer.

There are several dedicated devices on the market that will do the digital conversion, but the digital camera works very well at a third the cost.
