I'm sure this has been covered earlier, but I would like solutions with this months advances in technologies (if there are any!) I have a lot of VHS tapes from my daughter's childhood that I would like to convert to a digital format and I need suggestions on the best method and what is the best software to edit the digital file to remove dead space time, etc. I do not have a digital camcorder, but if that is the best method, I'll get one eventually.
