You need to have some kind of device in your computer that will capture video.If Media Import recognizes the device than you can capture using it.If not,then you will need to use the software that came with the device to do the capturing.

Thanks Terry,

I guess my question better stated is "how do I hook up my VCR to my computer to capture VHS tapes from the VCR?" I have over 100 VHS tapes that I want to move to DVD using Creator 9. So I need to learn how to connect a VCR to my computer to capture the video off of the VHS tapes. Thanks again for your help.

You need to have a capture card, similar to my Hauppauge. There are many out there, so you will have to do a little reading to see what will suit your needs.

Just to give you an example: In my case, I have an external device that I use to capture video. I connect the VHS player to this device via RCA cables (two audio and one video). The device, which is recognized by EMC9, is connected to the PC via USB. I then use Media Import to capture the video.

I use the Dazzle DVC90 that came with version 8.

No matter what you use you will need to output the audio and video from the VCR to whatever capture device you use.Directions should come with the device when you buy it.Unless we know what the device is it's hard to say how to connect it.

If Media Import then recognizes the device you can use it to import the tapes.If not then you will need to use the software that comes with the device to do the capturing.

Regardless of what you do there has to be some kind of device between the VCR and the computer (unless,I think, you have a Media Center PC which has the device built in).
