VHS Tapes for transfer to DVD via XP Movie Maker

I have numerous VHS Tapes which I want to transfer to DVD and also have an old 1986 (but working) JVC GR-C7 VHS(C) Video Camera/Recorder which I might use to record directly to DVD (via presumably my external 500Gb Hard Drive) and for which I have the camera's AV OUT to Video IN and AUDIO IN Connector. Hopefully I can use the in-built Windows Movie Maker existing on my XP.Editing is n ot of primary importance but a better storage media is. It seems that I need a "Device" to link my analogue JVC Super VHS Video Recorder via a USB2.0 socket on my PC and I assume the "device" would also work similarly with the Video Camera for direct recording to the PC as the camera would be then acting as a VCR.
Can any body comment on this please and recommend a suitable "Device". I regret that I am not at all "technical" as you would have gathered but I shall try to follow any ideas. Many thanks. Buckland.

If you are not wanting to edit the tapes then by far the easiest way is to buy a cheap standalone DVD recorder such as you connect to your TV and connect it to the video player via the SCART.

The above isn't technical at all and anyone can do it. The trouble with using a PC is it uses a lot of processing power, a huge amount of disk space and it takes time. Of course you can edit it.

If you do get a DVD recorder just make sure it has a SCART input as well as an output as I understand some don't.
