I have been reading several topics related to my particular question, but none that actually answer it. I am wanting to convert a bunch of old VHS and super 8 movies (analog) to DVD. My question is whether a external caputre device i.e. - Plextor, Dazzle, Canopus, etc or a PCI Capture Card (i.e. - pinnacle, and others) will give the best quality. I have decent horsepower (as well as USB 2.0 ports) in my computer, and I am just wondering if anyone knows the which type of capturing device generally gives the best quality. I do not have any specific brands in mind, so if you happen to comment on this post, I would appreciate your opinion on brand names of hardware and software. Thank you.
