    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/using/howto/movies/firststeps.asp>This</A> will give you a start on using Windows XP to capture VHS movies. I have not done it myself, and, my friends who are involved in this, swear by Macs.

    As for copying to a "DVD" hope you have a couple K of $ to buy the DVD writer.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Or a couple of K for an Mac Titanium ... <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20> However even Macs need something extra to convert analouge VCRs to digital DVDs. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.formac.com>here</A>

    You do have another option. Capture the VHS then compress and burn the movie onto a CDR. This costs a lot less and is much simpler to do than authoring a DVD with the correct menu structure for a DVD player.

    You will also have problems with loss of quality. In video speak, re-recording of an analog source always results in "generation loss". This is why digital video recorders are so popular. There is no generation loss when they are re-recorded or edited.
