Hi there, I am trying to get ten year old video tapes onto my Dell Inspiron Laptop. I just want to know exactly what I would need to do this? Obviously I need a cable that runs from my VCR (scart) to the back of my laptop (USB). But what about the correct software? And will I need some kind of video card? Im told laptops should'nt be opened up unless its back in the factory. I dont need any editing software or dvd burner software. I have just bought PowerDirector for that. If anyone has any answers, I'd really appreciate it. Cheers.
