Thank you

Does this work with commercial VHS video or only home made VHS videos?

I think I've bought something similar off Amazon, you plug it into your video player and then hook it up to your computer and record it as it plays. I think it should work with commercial tapes.

Thinking aloud, I didn't think VHS tapes had any protection other that the thing to stop them being recorded over? All this does is record the output video / Audio from a VHS player, so I can't see why it wouldn't do commercial video tapes. Anyone know?

​Well I have converted videos to dvd both by connecting a dvd recorder to a vhs player and more recently my game capture device and I have never been unable to record the film although quality is only as good as the original tape. It's only really worth getting if you have something on vhs impossible to get on dvd as quality wise I would rather re purchase the dvd version.

Commercial VHS tapes used Macrovision for copy protection. From personal experience of using similar video to USB devices this may or may not stop you copying them - it depends to some extent on what capture SW you use on the PC. IIRC Windows Movie Maker (in its XP form at least) was happy copying 'protected' tapes, whereas Nero wouldn't.

I bought this today however my mac doesn't have a cd/dvd drive and when plugged in its not installing itself. does anyone know where i can get a driver online for this?
