I intend to transfer my Super VHS tapes from an old camera to DVD and have aquired a Dazzle Platinum. But everything is for Windows! Does anyone know if it can be used on a Mac and if so how do I go about doing it? I have checked Pinnacle's site but no mention of a Mac there. I am an experienced Mac user and not frightened by jargon, etc.
Hope someone can help.

ibookG4, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    simple answer is no for the dazzle platinum you would need to purchase one (formac or migela) that is designed to work with a mac.

    i use the miglia scart which you cant buy anymore ive just had a look for it but it is made for mac and work great.

    hope this helps

    Hi kashby-

    Greetings and welcome to the APple boards.

    That thing may not work with your Mac then.

    Did you try plugging it in to see if the Mac will recognize it anyway via iMovie?

    You may be aware of this already, but if you really wanted to, you could download the Boot Camp beta from the Apple website or wait until it comes out with OS 10.5 Leopard, so (if you have a copy) you could run Windows (or other) OS on your mac, and install dazzle.

    You can try getting a canopus which is firewire driven and more stable than a usb driven. Anyway Dazzle can only be used on pinacle studio if you try using it on others window software like sony vegas or adobe premiere it dont work. It is a very restrictive hardware which i do not recommend.
