I went for a DVD recorder that also has a VCR built in and can record from tape to dvd and dvd from tape. BUT some dvd recording will not play on the pc/laptop even when finalized. Do not seem to have a problem if I use RW discs.
Unless they have improved them in the last few years I really wouldn't bother with the Dazzle. Its a while since I used mine because it takes at least 4 hours to convert each hour of tape, I ended up throwing the thing away.
Far better to buy a vcr/dvd combi as suggested by eedcam, that's what I did eventually.
