to start please do not comment if you are just going to tell me to buy them on dvd, that really doesnt help. some of the ones i want to transfer arent avail anywhere else, and the most important ones are a trilogy of sci-fi films where a certain smuggler still shoots first. i searched "laserdisc" and only come up with a few threads, and one was pretty much people who didnt know what they were, so i decided to start a new one. anyway so the title says it all. i have a late 2008 macbook pro and of course my laserdiscs and two players. Pioneer CLD-D406 and CLD-D501. and i want to transfer them at the highest quality possible without spending a ton. i know i need an analog to digital converter like the ones Canopus make but i was hoping i had other options as far as brand and price goes. ive been googling for days and i cant really find any info after 2007, and im sure products have come out since. help and or advice would surely be appreciated.
