You need a video capture card and an interface cable (scart on one end and plugs of your capture card and soundcard line in on the other).

Then you need some capture software.

Sorry - I should have been a little more helpful.

If this does not put you off then you need to start with your capture card. See what your local store has - there are a wide range available (Hercules, Pinnacle etc). Most will come bundled with some software but there is also downloadablle 30day free trial software from ULEAD (very good).

Cable is the easy bit but it is important that the SCART socket has a direction switch on it.

Hope this helps.

Or you could purchase a DVD recorder. Connect your VCR with the VHS tape to the DVD recorder using a scart to scart connection. And record the VHS tape
direct to DVD recordable disc in real time. See this previous PCA thread on recordable DVD
