Description:

DVD Xpress DX2, a USB 2.0 external audio/video capture device that is so easy to use, even consumers who aren’t technically savvy can convert analog audio/video content to a digital format. With support for all of the leading video formats, the plug-and-play device can be used to create high-quality videos that can be enjoyed on the road with portable video players* such as a Sony PSP, Apple iPod or Creative Technology’s new Zen Vision or viewed on a TV with a home DVD player.
