VHS tape to DVD copy?

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Michael A. Ball, Oct 27, 2007.

  1. What sort of card, software and DVD disk will I need, to transfer a VHS
    tape to a DVD. The tape is "Glory, Glory" (1984) with Richard Thomas,
    and is 152 minutes long.

    I've never written a disk of any type. Some one said I just feed the
    tape to my hard drive then write to the DVD. Is that all I need to
    know--basically?

    If anyone knows where I can buy this movie on DVD, I'd prefer doing
    that.

    Thank you.
