    Im hoping someone can help me out here. I have a 2007 macbook and Im trying to convert 8mm tapes using a camcorder from the stone age. I can't seem to find the correct adapter/cords to upload the videos to my computer in order to convert them to DVD. The ports the camcorder has are RCA ports and an S-video port. What is the easiest, most cost effective solution for this? Help!

    Check these links out. Any of them help?

    Basically you will need a capture device, as far as I know.

    I do not know why the above was censored but google "daniu soft How to Convert 8mm Video to DVD" and the first link takes you to the site.

    Jessica, Those websites are helpful for the converting process, thank you. I guess what Im struggling with, is that I don't know what hardware I need to purchase to make it happen. Im on a very elementary level with this. What would be an appropriate capture device?

    Jessica, those links are helpful for the converting process, thank you. I guess where im struggling still, is exactly what hardware I need to do this. Im on a very elementary level with this...what would be a concrete example of the kind of capture device I would need? Can anyone provide any links to capture devices for sale that would be appropriate?
