i've been looking for a while for a pc compatible product that can convert vhs tapes to a digital format that can be stored on an external hard drive, with no luck. the few i've seen, either they are too expensive or too much of a hassle. and i would like to buy it for black friday due to the markdown on the prices, so help me find the perfect converter. here are the ones i've seen so far: http://www.amazon.com/Studio-Movieb...4?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1195241415&sr=1-4 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=612720&CatId=1428 http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-VC500...00VM60I8/ref=pd_ts_e_11?ie=UTF8&s=electronics i'm also willing to take other recommendations as well. thanks.
