Copying VHS to my PC and then to DVD

by cogs06 - 10/26/09 5:07 PM

I want to copy my mountain of aging VHS movies to my PC and then onto DVD.

Some of them are Macromedia protected and as there are some 20 odd Disney movies still costing $25 plus here in Australia therefore this is my cheapest option.

I have been given all sorts of suggestions and the most feasiable was to connect my VCR to my PC through the SVideo port on my TV Tuner Card.

I have also tried to copy via my camcorder but it doesn't have analog to digital passthrough.

I connected my also aging VCR to my PC and have not been able to work out how to get the movie it is playing to be be viewed or captured on my PC and its monitor.

Can anyone assist me and point out what is probably the obvious to me please?

Present Australian copyright laws permit the owner of media to make one copy for their personal use as long as only one copy is played at any one time.

I am operating the following hardware:
Intel entium D 2.8 GHz
DDR2 RAM 667MHz 3 Gb
nVidea GeForce 7300GT video card
Seagate 320 Gb HDD (Main)
Seagate 500 Gb HDD (Storage)
Sony DVD single layer Burner
Leadtech 1000S DVB Tuner - with SVideo connection
SVideo to RCA adaptor


My Software is:
Windows Vista Home Premium SP2
Windows Media Centre
I have several DVD copying and burning programmes.

Regards,
