Hey guys,
I live in Qatar, and I found this cable with USB on one end, and RCA on the other. It's tough to find stuff that's too specific here, and ordering online is a huge hassle. I really need to get rid of a bunch of tapes and the VCR itself quick...

Question:
Can I at least view (and then possibly record/digitalize) those VHS tapes on my Mac through that cable ? There has to be a way...I mean to connect my TV to the VCR, all I need is double RCA.
PLEASE help, this would mean the world to me, there's a bunch of rare NBA stuff and old nostalgic stuff I NEED to conserve somehow, before I need to throw them out coz I'm moving in like a few weeks...

THANKS A LOT !! Would mean the world to me !!

P.S.: worst case I can do PC, but I'm using a Mac right now.

Can you be more specific? edit: I mean about the cable, not about living in Qatar...

hehe...well that's it ! USB on one end, and then RCA on the other end. That's it, just a wire with these two ends, no adapter on it, nothin...

Thanks for the reply guys ! Sorry for not being in the right forum apparently...not sure where to put this...

So nobody knows of a way with just that cable I have ??....
