I kind of finally found out where certain things were made and purchased what I would need to make DVD-R for my VHS tapes and OOP discs I own. I don't seem to be getting on DVD no matter how long I have waited since 1997. "The Battle of the Bulge" 1965 had a great cast a lot better than the trash that has been put on disc. I still have a lot of VHS that are just getting older, before they really do I would like to burn them to disc. Since I am not using my PC, I don't need any hard drive what Recorder would you recommend if this were possible?
