NO it just puts them on dvd something you could dobetter with a dvd recorder .Then with either you will need editing software to edit them on the pc after.What is the original format vhs tape if so I'd go for the dvd recording method much more straight forwardalbeit a bit more expensive for the initial outlay

its not a standard VHS tape.... umm its a smaller version.. ill have to find out what tape it is..
it was an old sony camcorder i think - weel not old, mid 90s...

The Dazzle was one of the worst boxes of hardware I've ever bought.

That wont matter does it have av and audio out sockets if so they will go into a dvd recorder

If you have a DVD recorder with a RCA type input system (most or all do) then plug the output from the tape device RCA or SCART converted into the recorder.

I use "Avermedia- DVD EZmaker Gold" which takes the VCR composite output and converts to digital.
It's a pci card and does a perfect job.
