There are DVD/VHS combo units that allow you to record VHS tapes onto DVDs. The price of these units range from about $150 up to $300+ depending on the quality of the brand you want. I have seen them on sale for less than $150, but you would need to look around for the sales. There is a problem with these units, however. Most newer VHS movies (and DVDs) are encoded for copyright protection and cannot be copied - unless you want to purchase a Descrambler. A Descrambler allows you to bypass the copyright codes and are to be used soley for the purpose of copying purchased movies. There are strict copyright laws as you have seen during the intro of VHS/DVD movies. If you intend to use the unit for copying things like TV shows, movies on cable, or home movies, then this would be a worthwhile purchase. I have just a standard Toshiba DVD burner and believe me, it gets a lot of use, mostly for TV shows on prime time TV. I work second shift and would miss out if I didn't have it. I can guarantee that you will get your moneys worth out of it. You can find them pretty much anywhere that sells electronics. As far as the Descrambler, I'm not sure they are carried in your local department store. The only ones that I have seen have been in magazine advertisements and once on The Home Shopping Network (HSN) and the price on there was around $100 - this was about 2 years ago. I hope that I answered your questions. Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this post was for you. Thanks and good luck. billyho1977@FixYa

How to convert VCR to DVD


no easy way to do this unfortunately. You either need to connect your VCR to a DVD recorder and record it directly onto DVD or use a device such as this http://www.dx.com/p/easycap-usb-video-capture-adapter-5707 to connect your VCR to your computer and record it onto your computer that way.

I have a Go-Video DV2150. Can I make a copy of a vcr tape to a dvd


The conversion from VHS to DVD means you are converting an analogue to a digital format. So you need to compress and process the data to be written down. If the above mentioned has the hardware/software support you can go ahead and convert.

I just bought a magnavox DV225MG9 A player . The salesman said it could copy vhs tapes to dvd. how do I do this with this machine?


If this is the correct model number, magnavox DV225MG9, above, this unit is only a DVD player not a DVD recorder. It won't dub DVDs to VHS either.

I wish that I could be more help.

Dvd recording using a pc


The product you need is called the Pinaccle Dazzle - it is basically a red/white/yellow composite to USB connector - it also comes with software for capturing your videos in DVD format on your computer (or you can record directly to a DVD disc inserted in yuor computer). I purchased mine at Best Buy, but it is available in a lot of places. It works great, and I have been busily converting those old VHS's to my PC, and then from PC to DVD.

Good luck!

  1. Be sure that your VCR is a newer one with at least one "line in" set of jacks in the back. Some have one in the back and one in front.
  2. Your DVD Player should have a video/sound cable with 3 connectors on each end. Otherwise get one or 3 single cables.
  3. Connect DVD Video Out to VHS Video In (yellow).
  4. Connect DVD Left to VHS Left (white).
  5. Connect DVD Right to VHS Right (red).
  6. Turn on your DVD and VHS.
  7. Your VHS should have a tuner setting for "L1" or "L2". Select whichever shows the DVD's video on the TV.
  8. Remember to select that input channel whenever you want to watch the DVD.
  9. When watching a DVD, if you have a blank VHS in the VCR, you may record what you are watching onto the VHS, just as if you were recording from cable.
Verify these steps and you should be good to go ;)

Not unless the DVD machine is a DVD Player/recorder. However if you have a PC you can record the Video to the PC and then take the video convert it to mpeg2 or mpeg4 and transfer these to the DVD recorder on your PC as a movie. Most DVD recorders come with software that lets you do this.

PAL to NTSC conversion


This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.
