Hi there,

What would be a good card to capture movies from my VHS and also I need some information and price for a big Hard Disk...

Let me know!

How big and how fast do you want the drive to be?

The IBM Deskstar 75GXP 45.0GB Ultra ATA/100 (8.5 ms, 7200 RPM, 2048 KB Cache) can be found for under $200.

If something slower will do, then you could consider the Maxtor DiamondMax VL40 Series 40.9GB Ultra ATA/100 (9.5 ms, 5400 RPM, 2048 KB Cache), Western Digital Caviar 45.0GB 5400 Ultra ATA/66 (9.5 ms, 5400 RPM, 2048 KB Cache ) or IBM Deskstar 40GV 40.0GB Ultra ATA/100 (9.5 ms, 5400 RPM, 512 KB Cache) for about $130.

For editing video, yes you do.

15K rpm Seagate Cheetah drive and an adaptec 160 scsi card, otherwise you are just playing http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/smile.gif

Good suggestion if SCSI is under consideration. Of course, the cost is considerably more... aren't the 36Gig drives over $500? Add to that the cost of the SCSI card and you're looking at a lot of $$$! http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/eek.gif

Agreed, but you need the right tool for right job. Having done DV editing I can say it takes a lot of horsepower, more so on the hard drive end than anything else cuse you are dealing with 10G + FILES if you do anything of any length. That will choke the fastest IDE out there in a heartbeat http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/wink.gif
