As Fruit Bat /\0/\ says, you will probably need a capture unit.

I use the Dazzle Fusion capture unit which is USB. Unfortunately, it appears to have been discontinued now.

But there are plenty of earlier threads on this subject. Just type vhs to dvd in the Forum Search at the top.

Bagsey, that's the one I have. Cost me £79 when I bought it.

Do you find it ok. I have heard mixed reports about it. But I always find that the people who have them give a more realistic picture of its usefulness.
