Ken do you have mini-DV camcorder? Some have what they call a passthrough feature. You hook the VHS deck to camcorder. If you have one check your manual or post the model and I'll look it up if it has that feature

Those work and certainly the easiest way to go but if you want to do it right see the article I wrote here:

Somewhere in a mall I believe I saw a sign that said they do VHS to disk transfers. You might ask around video stores & the like.

Ken I'm asking if you have a mini-DV camcorder in addition to your VHS camcorder.

You hook the VHS camcorder to the mini-DV camcorder if it has that feature. It's actually on of the best methods of converting VHS or other analog a material to digital. Most people don;t realize they have one the best converters you can get right under your nose. ;)

You can also plug the video and audio outputs from the JVC into your home computer if it has the inputs. You could then use a video recording software to make an electronic copy and burn it to a DVD. I don't know if Windows media player has the capability to do this sort of operation or not.

They might all be great ideas that would work, if only I wasn`t so tech. challenged. I feel lucky if I can find just about anything in this world.

Using the mini-DV camcorder method is actually pretty simple.

A lot of them have all kinds of outputs put inputs capability is rare on regular computers unless it's a Media PC, some older models before the Media PC's had VIVO cards. You can always install PCI capture card on any computer and they make all kinds of external devices.

Having said that for the average person a mini-DV camcorder with that ability is best way to go if you want to capture to computer. You get a camcorder besides all the benefits capture through mini-DV cam affords.
