    Hi Denniscam -

    Don't know if this will help, but here goes.

    I've transferred VHS to PC/DVD using a mini DV camcorder. You plug the red/yellow/white audio/video leads into the TV & the AV jack into the AV-in socket on the DV camcorder. You press play on the VCR & REC on the camcorder. The footage is then digitised.
    It's now ready to go into yr video editing program on yr PC. You then burn it to DVD.

    Another method works but only if you have s-video out (on your VCR) and s-video in (on your graphics/capture card) on yr PC. You will also need to capture audio separately as (I'm told) s-video doesn't carry sound.

    The mini DV camcorder method worked fine for me. If you haven't got one, see if you can borrow one (& the relevant leads).

    Good luck.
