I'm wondering what is the best cheap DV media converter for apple? I was told the dazzle M-2200 is best because of the firewire interface. However, I know most here use a different one for which the name escapes me. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have a Sony DVMC-DA2 that works very well. There are a few dozen of these things on the market and this is the only one I have experience with. I think I paid about $300 for mine.


I wouldn't consider anything but Firewire/IEEE1394/iLink for this type of application...

A hardware analog to DV video converter, by it's nature, is going to have a firewire output (at least all the ones I've seen). You can use the stand-alone converters only such as the Dazzle or the Sony mentioned, or you could get a DV camcorder with analog inputs. Most can perform the same function and you get a camcorder as a bonus.
