I would like to convert my analogue video 8 tapes to Digital. The problem (or is it?)
I am running a Beige G3 with a G4 450 1 meg ziff upgrade with a Maxtor 40 gig 7200 hardrive. The bus is running at 75 mhz.I have not installed a firewire card yet.
Will this setup work or is it still to slow?

It'll be a slooow process. If you just want to pull the footage onto the computer and fire it back onto DV then that's okay, not really that bad. If you want to edit and play with it you are going to have a bit of trouble, rendering times and such.

You may, depending on how much tape you have, be better off going to Image Works or some place and renting an editing suite and using a deck setup to simply dump the footage right to DV tape.

If I'm reading what you want to do right.
