Importing Old VHS Tapes Using a DV Camcorder
If you own a digital camcorder, but still have some older VHS (or other format) tapes, you can bring that footage into iMovie to edit or even just to store digitally. Connect your VCR to your camcorder and record the contents of the VHS tape to the DV tape. Then, you can import your footage into iMovie normally. (Or, use an analog-to-digital converter between the VCR and your Mac.)
