I want to copy and edit a collection of family VHS tapes and place them on DVDs and scan a large number of photographs and build slide shows as it will be more convenient to view them on a TV and I have decided to buy a Mac. I know that it is possible to capture the content of the VHS tapes to a Windows based computer by connecting a VCR to a Windows based computer and I assume that it is also possible to do this with a Mac. I have also connected a VCR to a DVD recorder through a TV and created a number of DVDs and when I downloaded the content to a computer I found that it was possible to upload the VOB files to the video editing software that I was using. Question: Wil a Mac accept those DVDs? I have a scanner connected to a windows based computer and I have a great number of photographs that I want to build into slide shows and I want to keep that connected and do not want to buy another scanner for the Mac. Question: If I scan the photographs using my Windows based computer connected to a scanner is there a way that I can move the results to a Mac to build slide shows?
