What's the best cables to use? in Easy VHS to DVD for Mac Posted November 11, 2009 · Report reply No. The Easy VHS to DVD for Mac has a video-capture device that plugs into your Mac's USB port (no cable needed). It also includes a cable with a mini-USB plug at one end and RCA/S-video connectors at the other. The mini-USB plug attaches to the video capture device and you connect standard a-v cables at the other end of the cable. I'm sensing that you expect to be able to record analog video directly into your Mac via a cable only. That can't happen. You need an analog-to-digital converter between the analog video player and your Mac. Roxio's Easy VHS to DVD for Mac is one such device. I think I understand now. Thank you.
