So part of my plan lately is to remove excess stuff from my life.. And I'm staring at this wall of movies that I love but which takes up so much space.

Has anyone had any real success copying VHS movies to DVDs that will play in the DVD player and not just your computer? I know it should be possible, I've seen tons of conflicting how-to pages, I'm just looking for some real world confirmation.

OK, I've not actually done this, but I do have some VHS tapes that need to get transferred to digital format, so I've been thinking about it a bit.

Once I get my VHS back connected to my computer, I'll let you know what works for me, but here's the plan.

1. Connect the VCR to my Hauppage TV/Vid Capture card in the media PC.
2. Hit Play and record the show to a big file on the hard disk.
3. Use some kind of video editing software to clean up and improve the file (Windows Movie Maker maybe).
4. Use Nero to the chapters and titles and all those special effects that make a DVD a DVD, and then convert it to the proper format and burn it on a DVD.

Those seem to be the crucial steps.Your software and hardware choices may vary.

Hope This Helps!

That was me and my non-user-remembering Firefox install.

It's always something....
