VHS tape to PC/DVD

Likes # 0

Hi,

I'm looking for an easy to use, easy to connect package to allow my mother in law to save her old VHS tapes to her laptop and later burn to DVD.

I must emphasise the "easy" part!

Thanks,

Rob.

The easiest way would be to use a DVD/VHS combi. Hardly worth buying a new one but here is a used example for £45 if still about.DVD/VHS COMBI. Probably others on eBay

Thanks for the suggestions.

A PC-based solution would be best as it offers the ability for editing out unwanted stuff, and stiching together short bits of footage.

If you read dms_05's link and google the subject, there is a lot of software available.(Google VHS to DVD) If you have a good DVD recorder with an HD and burner you can do it and edit out gaps etc. Both My Pioneer and Panasonic DVD recorders will let you do this by connecting the VHS player by SCART to the aux input. Takes a long time and the final quality nothing like a new DVD.

Well, you can simply google your question for solutions. When I did that, I found this tutorial useful: http://www.imatesoft.com/burn-dvd/convert-vhs-to-dvd.html

Good luck.
