    I want to take my VHS movies and put them on my mac so i can edit and put them on DVDs. Are there any firewire/usb devices out there that can do this cheaply and are mac compatible? Any recommendations?

    Duff-Man says....there are quite a few out there - I think the Pinnacle is about the cheapest one - if you google it you see some reviews (I've not used it myself).....oh yeah

    Elgato's eyeTV works well, as does Dazzle's bridge.

    Any good digi camera will covert via firewire too, I use a little Sony, it gets good results.

    Canopus products. Go to their site. Should be exactly what you need.
