Just been thinking why don't you buy a DVD recorder and just plug one into the other and press play on the VCR and record on th DVD recorder.
Of course this depends on your current PC set up and whether you have to buy a new graphics or video capture card to achieve the transfer of VCR to DVD ie which is most expensive. click here For examples of DVD recorders
See thew two pages on DVD recorders on this PCA thread click here I would recommend the Panasonics from my own experience (I have two of them) but the JVC is also a breeze. The JVC and Panasonics from Digital Point, Free delivery by City Link within 24 hours, are also multi-region chipped.
All you need to transfer the VHS tape to a DVDR is a scart lead to connect the VCR to the DVD recorder. You can then transfer your VHS tape to DVD in real time. i.e. one hour VHS transfer to DVD in one hour. No PC video files involved. You will of course need a 4.7GB recordable DVD blank disc.
