One question I get asked often is: "How Do You Copy VHS to DVD?". The answer is - There are three ways a consumer can copy VHS tapes to DVD:

1. Connecting a VCR to a DVD Recorder (the same connections that you use to connect a camcorder to a VCR or two VCRs together). Here are some of my current suggestions for DVD recorders

2. Using a DVD Recorder/VCR Combination unit (most of these units have a cross-dubbing function). Here are some of my current suggestions for DVD recorder/VCR Combinations

3. Connecting your VCR to a PC via an analog-to-digital video transfer device, recording your VHS video to the PC's hard drive, and then writing the recorded video to DVD using the PC's DVD writer. Also, check out a VCR from Ion Audio that connects directly to a PC via the USB port without the need of an additional analog-to-digital video converter: VCRtoPC

NOTE: You can only copy non-commercial VHS tapes that you have recorded yourself to DVD. You can't make copies of most commercially made VHS movies due to copy-protection. For more details on this aspect of copying VHS to DVD, check out my article: DVD Recording and Video Copy Protection
