    I found a bunch of old VHS tapes and want to upload them to my macbook or imac. Can this cable

    http://www.amazon.com/3-RCA-to-USB-Cable/dp/B003QA5LA0/ref=lh_ni_t

    be used for connecting the VHS player to my 2009 Macbook or my 2010 iMac? I am sure iMovie will capture the movies if it recognized the connection through USB..... amazon reviews seem to say it works fine, but I just want to make sure it works fine with a Mac....

    I cant see this cable working without some 3rd party software. But for less than $4 cant hurt to try?

    There are some pretty negative reviews. It's a risk, but not much of a risk money wise. Check out all the reviews.
