You need something to turn the analog video signal into a digital video signal. You can use a PCI card (capture card) or you can use an external converter (like a Canopus or Pinnacle box) that connects to your computer with a USB or firewire. With the PCI card, you plug an analog cable into your computer and the computer will perform the conversion. With the external hardware converter, the converter performs the conversion and sends a digital signal to your computer. You will need capture software for either option. Also plenty of free, contiguous hard drive space - that is a big cause of dropped frames.

If you want portable a Sony PCM-M1 will get the job done nicely (no SCMS, good battery life, small size, super bit mapping). Keep in mind that you'll need a proprietary 7 pin cable to send a digital signal out to the S/PDIF inputs on your soundcard - costs around $50-100.
