If I have a dvd recorder, can I hook my vcr to it and record my vhs tapes to a dvd disk?
Only what you tape from TV. Probably not your commercial, store-bought VHS tapes (Macrovision copy-protection). But you could buy one of those boxes that will defeat the copy protection, but why bother - just rent the DVD, and nick-nick-a-doo with Decrypter.
Thanks for the reply.Actually the only thing I want to record is all my old home movies,vacations ect.Will it work for those?
I have done exactly what you want to do. I took all my old home video's recorded with a VHS camcorder and converted them to dvd. Here is what I used: Belkin Videobus II( http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Product_Id=88962 ) and Ulead VideoStudio 8. I got perfect results. Added menues and chapters with VideoStudio 8.
Sure chewbaca. If they are home movies and you recorded them with a camcorder, you could do even better than a VHS player transfer by using the Super-VHS "S" cable from your camcorder to hook directly to the DVD recorder.
Thanks for the reply everyone
