To transfer VHS to DVD you will need to take the analog VHS footage and transfer it to DV digital video. There are several ways to do this but all of them involve playing VHS tapes in real-time.
The easiest way to transfer VHS to DVD is to use a VHS transfer service and have them do the work for you. StashSpace transfers VHS to digital for $6.95/tape. You can get DVDs made right away or go online and use the video editor to watch and customize your movie.
Another option involve connecting a VHS player (a.k.a. VCR) to a DVD recorder. You will get a DVD copy of your VHS tape that is unedited. DVD recorders range from $150-$250 and are an option if you have a lot of time on your hands and good troubleshooting abilities for getting everything setup. One common issue with using a DVD recorder for transferring VHS to DVD is that the DVDs are not always compatible with other DVD players and can only be played back in the DVD recorder.
A third option is to purchase a video capture card and software for your computer. You would need a VCR, component video cords to connect to your VCR, a computer with a powerful processor, lots of available storage space, and a DVD burner. This is an option if you have a strong technical option and are looking for a do it all yourself option. An variation of this option is to have stashspace transfer your VHS tapes to a portable hard drive for you, or to use the online video editor.
