Can this product record what I am doing on my XBOX 360, and then allow me to transfer it to my computer for editting? I am trying to find a way to make a machinima. If VideoWrap is not what I want, then could you please recommend something useful yet affordable? Thank You.

No. VideoWrap doesn't capture footage at all, it is just for very easily compressing footage to a smaller size. I can't recommend anything, as I've no idea what a machinima even is, let alone how to do it.

Machinima is a form of filmmaking where you record the gameplay of a video game, and then edit it to turn it into something like a movie. Try searching machinima in combination with something like Halo 3, and you will see what I mean.

My son runs his X-Box through a VCR and brings me a tape every once in a while to capture to the computer so he can edit it and upload it...
I use my camcorder as a "firewire interface" - hook the VCR up to the RCA and the firewire up to the computer - and capture... maybe you could do something like that?
hope it gives you a few ideas

Yeah some camcorders allow you to plug them into the TV, and record whats on the screen onto the camera tapes, then stream it onto the computor.
Failing that, use a DVD recorder, then rip the DVD onto your PC
