I have a Panasonic NV-DS150B and I have no problem in capturing via firewire into either Pinnacle Studio 8 or UleadVideo Studio. But I also have a Sony analogue Hi-8 TR950E with many tapes I would like to edit. Am I correct in thinking that an "Analogue to Digital" converter would mean that I could plug the Sony straight into the converter and the converter into the Firewire port and then capture as for digital? If so does anyone have any suggestion as to where I might buy a good one and which one? Many thanks for any help as I am a beginner but very keen on digital video and editing. I have problems with the Pinnacle card as my PC refuses to recognise it so conversion seems the easiest way to me.
