    If all you want to do is transfer some old VHS footage tothe PC then you don't need to worry about the compact flash etc etc.

    I bought one of these (found cheap in Dixons of all places!) for the purpose of transferring old VHS to PC (then later to DVD).

    Worked like a charm first time. The compact flash bit is simply that the unit acts as a multi card reader as well as an analogue-to-digital transfer card.

    Open up Windows Explorer witht eh unit turned on. You should find you have two extra disk drives. Clicking on them shoudl result in a message of the form 'insert a disk into driv x'. If you have a digital card you can insert it into the appropriat eslot and simply read the card as though it were a disk drive.

    But for video transfer you don't need to worry about all that.

    I do my captures using the s/w supplied, giving me nice large avi files which then get imported in Premiere.

    Let me know if you need more.
