I would like to use a Macbook Pro to capture some video from old tapes. Instead of using an external hard drive, could I simply capture the video to a SDHC card placed inside the computer? Are there any issues with doing that?
I do it all the time. If your SDHC card if fast enough (class 10's are even cheap nowdays) your computer just sees it as another hard drive and then you can pull it out and put it in another computer, or whatever.
