I have Legacy audio driver--Soundmax integrated digital audio
WDM video for windows capture driver (WIN 32)

And I have no idea what those mean - but I want to connect my vcr to my computer and I don't know if what I have is enough or if I need a video card. If I do need a video card, since I am completely computer illiterate, can someone tell me a good video card (one that would give great quality), what name or specifics I should ask for in the store and exactly what am I suppose to do with it once I purchase it (how do I install it, etc) How do I hook up to it. What do I use after that to get it on my computer - I do have Adobe Premiere, Nero --do I need something else like Windows Movie Maker? HELP - Because I am so computer unsavvy, I do need step by step instructions I have a new granddaughter that I have videotaped and I want to make a good quality movie with these videos. Thanks so much.

What you actually want is either a video capture card or (preferably) a TV capture card, available from all good computer shops.
These go into a slot inside the computer and the bit you connect your aerial to sticks out the back of the computer.
You can then use the software that comes with the card to record your video.
