    Hi all,
    R10. Laptop computer.
    Do they make a RCA - USB cable so I can connect my R10
    to my laptop and transfer a show? Is that how its done?
    What software do I need on my laptop in order to take a few
    shows and burn them on a CD for my son? Thanks.

    You won't be able to use your USB ports on that R10. That unit can't be hacked without desoldering and replacing a chip on the motherboard.

    The OP mentioned RCA to USB so the linked items is what he's looking for. However, the notebook needs to support USB 2.0.

    Also, if you have a firewire enabled camcorder and your notebook has firewire then you can use that as a bridge for recording.
