Connect VCR to computer

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I would like to find a cable that I can hook up a VCR to my computer. One end, usb connection and the other
a male connector. I do'nt want to record VHS tapes just play them back on my computer. Is there such a cable and what is the cost? The computer is a Dell desktop.
Please send answer to my E-mail address: rupertlefty@hotmail.com.

Thank you.

  1. your better off picking up a video input card. most have a cable connector or video and audio in. the devices will do the converting of the video so that you wont see any audio/video lag.
  2. How do I install a video input card? I don't want to spend a lot of money just enough to make it work.
    Thanks for the advice.

    Get Roxio Easy VHS to DVD. This includes the needed hardware and software to access a VHS player (and burn to DVD). Good tool. Easy to use. I used to convert 100s of hours of VHS to DVD.

    Cheaper at Newegg:

  4. I tried Roxio Easy VHS to DVD, and the sound was NEVER synched with the video. It was always off by at least a second. :pfff:
