There are computer-independent units out there that let me connect my vcr directly to the unit, whch then digitizes the video and put its on a DVD. Considering that I currently only have USB 1.1, no copying-digitizing transfer software and no DVD drive in my computer, would this be a recommended way to go. If so, which units would you recommend? (I do have a DVD player for my TV which is where I would watch any DVDs I made froml the videos.
Or would it be more practical to get the DVD drive, the software, the USB 2.0 deal (does that come as a PCI card?) and the cables to connect vcr to my computer?
