    I had this little solo show last night, and my dad video taped it. We have a video camera that's from the 90's which records to a little sized VHS tape. I would like to convert it to Digital and get it on my computer. Is this possible? If so, what can I use?

    You need a video importing device for your computer. I have an ATI internal video card (replacing the standard motherboard card) which works fine, but now external devices are pretty common and much cheaper. I haven't tried one of those, so I can't comment on their quality.

    Hope this helps.

    I've got a Radeon 9800 Pro and a TV Tuner. Could I plug my video camera into my TV tuner (has the yellow red and white jacks) and save it to my computer some how?
