I presume you want to copy VHS tapes or any other analogue tapes to DVD. I recently posted a similar query click here
You need something to convert the analogue signal from the tape to digital & I have found the JVC GR-D70 camcorder which you can purchase for about £400 or less, excellent for this. (No doubt there are other camcorders that will do the same job but you need to check that it will accept analogue input with digital output). Assuming you have the correct output connections on your VCR it is connected to the camcorder via the supplied 3.5 mini plug to RCA plug & using a firewire lead, which you have to purchase, the camcorder is connected to your PC. You then record the VHS tape contents on to the camcorder tape which you subsequently copy to your PC. After this SirGalahad2004 suggestions for copying to the DVD can be followed
