Default From VHS to DVD?

I have a bunch of family videos and I was curios if there is a way to convert them into digital format since tapes magnetize and are a huge pain in the backside to store.

It's quite simple actually, you buy a converter which will turn the signals coming from the rca plugs to an usb signal, connect it to the pc, use the software that came with the converter and voila you have digitized your vhs tapes.

Can also get a combo VHS and DVD unit. Record the VHS to DVD and you're set to go.

I was under the impression that those combo units only read and don't write jvc, I could be wrong however, but I'd also be in favor of an usb converter since you can edit the images on your pc to spruce the quality up a bit.

The whole purpose in the combo units to start with was for people to copy their home movies to dvd. You cannot copy a commercial movie from vhs to dvd on them, but copying home movies or recording tv shows to dvd shouldn't be a problem. See this one: Amazon.com: Toshiba DVR620 DVD/VHS Recorder, Black: Electronics Read the customer reviews about it. Do a search on Amazon for other brands and see which sounds the best to you. Good luck!

Yup, I was wrong seems they were embedded with a writing laser to, I just made the conclusion to keep prices down they they made the read only, I guess the real question now is how much are you willing to spend, since if you already have a vhs player you'll probably not want to invest in another one.

Thanks guys for the quick answers I think I'll go with the usb option, since I don't want to buy another vhs player and I can try my hand at editing them a little on the pc to.
