    I want to convert some old VHS tapes to quicktime movies. Please suggest an inexpensive device to do this on my iBook (1.2 Ghz G4). I don't need it to do anything else, just convert VHS tapes to QT.

    Thanks!

    Check out the last item on this page... $199.
    Apple - Video Devices

    Also, if you have a miniDV camcorder, some of them allow you to transfer video to your computer through them on the fly, so you could plug a VCR into its video inputs and pass it through the camcorder into iMovie or other programs.

    Doh.
    Go to http://store.apple.com
    click on "more accessories..." on the lower left, then "video devices" at the bottom. It's the Pinnacle Studio Moviebox DV for $199.
