Transfering VHS tapes to DVD

Does anyone know of software to use to transfer kids videos/disney etc to dvd

If you have a spare pci slot on your motherboard,I use and recommend 'Avermedia DVDezmaker gold' With this you can connect your vhs recorder to your computer (note that sound is connected to your audio in socket) and with the software supplied with the pci card (NeoDVD plus) you can capture your tapes and then burn them to DVD using any of the DVD burning programs.

Or even this. click here

I use the Dazzle Fusion USB unit. I am at present transferring all my Beta tapes over to DVD. Not had any problems so far.

My unit came with Pinnacle Studio 8 but it could possibly be packaged with Studio 9 by now.

Also, mean't to add. Just type in "vhs to DVD" in the search box. There are at least 20 previous threads on this subject where you can get a lot more info.

I'm not going into the moral/legal aspects of doing this but you may find that a lot of the software to enable you to do this sort of thing will prevent you processing copy protected (Macrovision) video tapes.

Yes, as €dstowe has pointed out. If the VHS tapes are commercial they will have protection on them and you may not be able to copy them.

The Beta tapes I am transferring to DVD have been recorded "off air" and although it is still subject to copyright it has been accepted, otherwise why do we have VCRs?
