There are also a bunch of combo units (vcr to dvdr) out there that will work. Some even have bypass password for macrovision protected tapes. They are the easiest thing to do what you want to do.

Doing it with a computer takes a long time and if you have windows vista it is hard to find software that works with old capture cards and video capture software. Save you self a headache and just get a combo unit.

Hi you could install a Video Grabber or an Internal TV Tuner card into your computer if its Desktop computer or an expensive USB TV TUNER if its for laptop . Plug in the composite video out from your VCR to the Composite Video in to the computer .Use nero or any other software to build a movie in fact the bundled application software of your TV TUNER or VIDEO Grabber card would be better .

How to remove iTunes DRM copy-protection and burn iTunes movie to DVD?


Many friends ask me how to burn iTunes movies to DVD, so that they can enjoy their movies on large screen TV. For computer newbie, I will recommend them to get an Apple TV; it can connect your iTunes library to TV, the only thing you need to do is to sync movies from iTunes to Apple TV box. An Apple TV costs $299, if you think this is beyond your budget, you can use software to do that same thing, which is a lot cheaper.
Now, let me explain the details. Because movies and TV shows purchased from iTunes store have DRM copy-protection, you have to remove the DRM protection before burning them to DVDs for playback on your home DVD player.

What you need are: Aimersoft DVD Creator & Tunebite. You can download them from:
http://www.topsreviews.com/dvd-creator/dvd-creator-aimersoft.html
http://www.dvd-video-converters.com/dvdvideosuite/backup-copy-protected-music-and-video-with-tunebite.html

Download Aimersoft DVD Creator

    Part1. How to remove DRM copy-protect from iTunes purchased movie or TV shows?
    Step1. Download and install Tunebite, just follow the installation wizard, this software will install several high-speed dubbings to speed up the conversion, when you see the pop up warning messages, just click “Keep on going” to finish the installation, which may take a few minutes.

    Step2. Then run Tunebite, click “Add” button to load your iTunes purchased movies or TV shows, the default directory is My Document\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music
    In the “Convert Video to” drop down list, select “WMV7 (1024 kbps)”, then click “Start” to begin the conversion. If you don’t know where the converted videos are saved, you can click “Folder” to locate the files on your computer.

Tips: this software can also remove DRM from purchased music and audio books; it also works for other online stores such as Zune, Amazon, etc.

Part2. How to burn DRM-free iTunes video to DVD?
Step1. After you remove the DRM copy-protection from iTunes purchased movies, download Aimersoft DVD Creator and install it. (Note, you need a DVD Burner to burn DVD, so make sure your DVD Drive has DVD+RW or DVD-RW symbol)

Step2. Run Aimersoft DVD Creator, click “Load Video” button to import your DRM-free videos, and then drag the videos to the storyboard. If you want to burn videos to dual-layer DVD (DVD-9), at the bottom of the interface, select “DVD-R 9.0G”, you can also customize video quality there. And the used disc space is shown on the disc space bar underneath the storyboard.

Step3. If you just want to burn the video to DVD without adding any special effects, just click the “Burn” tab. Here you will see the following options:
“Burn to”: you can burn the video to DVD or create an ISO file on your hard drive.
“Drive”: If your computer has multiple DVD burners, you can select any of them.
“TV Standard”: NTSC is 30 fps. It’s used in USA, Canada and Japan. PAL is 25 fps and it’s used in Europe and Asia.
After the above steps, put a blank DVD disk into your drive and click “Start” to burn your movie.

We have VCR tapes with videos on it we would like to convert them to DVD or CD- how should we do it


I hope that you have plenty of time on your hands. If you do, then you will need a video capture card or tv-tuner USB dongle. Most large computer stores carry a variety of choices. Hook the line-out of the VCR to the TV-tuner or video capture card and use the digital video recording software that came with it to record your video to your hard disk. From here you can edit it with a video editing program and burn the finished product to your DVD or you can burn the raw files to the DVD.

I wish to copy a DVD with .DAT file or other video


First to make it clean, you are not allowed to make copies of the original DVDs. They are under Copyright law.

You may make a copy of original DVD for home/backup purpose.

Put your DVD in your drive.

If some movie playing software opens, than close it !
Plug your USB device and open it.
Create a folder with the name of movie, and open it !

Open My computer, right click on your DVD Rom device, and click Open.

You will see contents of the DVD. Press CTRL+A click and drag it to the new folder on your USB !

Later you can watch the movie from the USB.

If you want to copy a disc to antoher you need some software like Nero and you should choose a DVD Copy.

Please note that you will need a Disc with tjhe same size as the original (4.7 or 8.4 GB) and also, note that some DVD movies are protected and can not be copied, or that you might not be able to watch a copy of it.

Regards.

Vhs to dvd


Get a TV card (PCI, USB or PCMCIA); plug an AV cable from the back of the VCR to the TV card, then use the software supplied with the TV card to write the input to an AVI file... The playback has to be 1 to 1,
write the AVI to a DVD using any DVD, or VCD creation software... If you want multiple copies copy the DVD, don't re-write it from the source material (it is quicker)... And then delete the source AVI.
If you don't have a TV card but have a digital camcorder see if it supports AV-IN. When you do this I go from my VCR to the camera then to a firewire port on the PC. The camera acts as a bridge. you can burn it with Nero 5.5xx Get very good results this way.
