I found this page years ago and I still come back to it for insight. However, with this being 2005, what I have found to work best on this day is using the Pinnacle AV/DV Capture card with Studio 9 fully updated. I use firewire for capturing from our miniDV camera and the card to capture from a DVD/VCR player. Works great. Also using Windows XP with a gig of ram on a lowly 2.0 Celeron Gateway. But it works great. I also would tell anyone using Studio 8 and having troubles to trash it and get away from it and go to 9, do not wait.
