Converted all my Hi-* home videos to DVD. I first started by doing video capture to my computer, and then authoring and burn a DVD. This required special hardware and software. It was very time consuming, and the results were so-so. I then went to Walmart and bought their cheapest DVD video recorder, and hooked it up directly to my Hi-8 video camera. This was very easy, and the results were great. Recommend this method. Walmart no longer sells the model DVD recorder that I have, but here's their latest cheap one (and people seem to like it):

There are USB connectors that can import analog video and put it as digital on your PC. (software for that is most of the time included)
There are also firms, that will do the sae job, but it will cost Twice as much as a USB converter for each tape you have.

Just check the net for a simple USB converter. There are lots of converters, from perhaps $ 40 to thousands of dollars. chose a cheap solution where you can import video and audio in the same time. Should be a connector that fits on your camera or recorder.

What is DVD IFO?
You will find VIDEO_TS folder and AUDIO_TS on a DVD-Video disc. The VIDEO_TS folder includes the files and data for the DVD movie. You will find three kinds of files: BUP, VOB and IFO. The VOB file contains video and audio data. The IFO file contains video navigation information like chapters, while the BUP file is the backup file of IFO.
To load a DVD IFO file, it indicates that we can load part of the DVD disc for conversion. You will find VIDEO_TS.IFO, which generally includes all the information of the disc. The VTS_01_0.IFO usually is the main movie and other IFO files as copyright notice, extras and so on.

How to convert DVD IFO to iPhone 4?
A good Mac DVD IFO to iPhone 4 converter shall not only work on Leopard and Snow Leopard, but also be able to convert DVD IFO from DVD disc and DVD IFO from DVD-Video file structure folder on hard drive. Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac is the recommended Mac DVD IFO to iPhone 4 converter for you to convert the videos as you like.
Step 1. Load DVD IFO to Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.
Download Mac DVD IFO to iPhone 4 converter, insert DVD disc to DVD-Rom and click the IFO/ISO button. You will face the Mac folder, choose the DVD from DEVICE, and open the VIDEO_TS folder to find IFO files. Here I choose VIDEO_TS.IFO for conversion.
Step 2. Choose iPhone 4 720p video output.
Click the Format option and you will find several profiles. Choose iPhone > iPhone 4 H.264 720P(*.mp4) for the output video.
Step 3. Choose subtitle for iPhone 4 video. (optional)
Click the "Subtitle" option and choose the preferred subtitle language for display on iPhone 4 video.
