Download the free program, it has support and documentation and works on PC, Mac and Linex. You will need a cable to go from the line out of the player to the line in on your computer, $3 at Frys. On a PC there is one file,,LAME which you will have to download which is also free. It converts whats on the tapes with enhancements and does much more. The program also allows you to split or join pcs. I've used it for 2 years, works great.

I didn't charge him for it but he gave me passes to get in to the stock show and passes for the grand kids to ride. My 6 year old grand daughter about wore out the Fast Trax slide. I am always looking for free stuff. Some of it is better than the stuff you buy. I did buy Pinnacle to convert my VHS tapes. Their software isn't the best. Unless you use their software it won't pick up the audio.

Sure makes it easy to straighten out somebody elses computer from home.I have a one-click VNC app I setup -- you can download it from my server when I send the link, double click it and boom... It phones home to my IP and connects automatically - no firewall problems, no 'setup' issues - nothing -- and once you or I disconnect the session, it automatically 'removes' from memory - no services or anything like that stay resident - you have to initiate the connection before I can get in. I also use a little program I found to do wiring schematics -- it was pretty easy to setup -- I used it to do a wiring diagram for a 4x4 matrix controller for a Zipper using the SSR's and a controller from Dial Lighting... I was gonna send it to you and it slipped through the cracks I think (last spring) -- I might have to check out those CAD apps, but I don't CAD too often to be honest - especially now that I'm 'retired' - and before, it was mostly hands-on - I didn't have to send the information to others much -- I would just go on-site to deal with anything to make sure it was done right ;)
