    It may depend on whether these are pre-recorded movies or videos recorded "over the Air". I am getting ready to try the same sort of thing. I know that in order to duplicate pre-recorded movies, I had to buy a little box - but that was almost 20 years ago. I purchased Roxio easy vhs to dvd3 to try but have not had the time lately. What kind of hook-up to your computer do you have?
