Yes. Your sound card must have the proper inputs for this. Talk to the folks at the computer stores. Talking is still free !....BB You need a video capture card to convert the analog signal from your VCR to digital. These capture cards range quite a bit in quality but are readily available online and in computer electronics stores. However, if you are transferring home movies I recommend using a video transfer service so that you get the best quality. StashSpace.Com does a good job, lets you edit online before burning DVDs and is only $6.95 a tape.

NO you cannot. AS video8 is digital and VHS is analog so they dont work together. The adaptor will only work with VHS-C tapes.

StashSpace.Com does a good job at this, costs $7 for the transfer to digital and $10-15 for DVDs.

Do you have any DVD recorders in the modern time out in the stores that you can use to download any of your old VCR tapes besides recording tapes on DVD disc?

VHA tapes are linear, analog recording systems. There is no way to download anything from VHS tapes other than by playing the tape and capturing the content using another recorder such as a DVD recorder. The quality of the recording will remain a typical VHS quality but once the content is captured in a digital format, it can be loaded on to a computer and possibly enhanced to eliminate some of the usual problems of VHS quality.

Can early analog computer save data?

Mechanical and many electronic analog computers saved their output data as pen plots on paper. Some high speed electronic analog computers could read/write data as waveforms on multichannel wide magnetic tape (similar to the master recording tapes used in music studios). Such analog computers were sometimes used as controllers and data collection devices on wind tunnels or in industrial process control before digital computers became affordable and reliable enough. These special tapes could be played back later off line at slow speed if pen plots on paper were desired. Other high speed electronic analog computers drew their output on CRTs which were then photographed to save it. There are other ways too.
