How do I convert videos on an old camcorder cassette tape to a DVD?

All of our home videos are on old tapes and these memories are extremely important to me so I wanted them on a DVD so I could watch them without the hassle of setting up the camcorder to my TV screen.

Purchase a PANASONIC DMR-EH75V - HDD DVD RECORDER w/ 80GB HARD DRIVE. SD CARD - I have this same machine. They are selling on Ebay for about $400 to $600. You can edit which video you want on separate titles and organize your family memories more efficiently. They look professional and the HDD process of saving the VHS upgrades the look of the video also. Once you have a digital copy on HDD you can multiple copies for family members also. I have had this machine (bought it brand new back in 2006) and wouldn't sell or trade it for anything. It is a great investment.

You can take it to Walgreen's, and go to the photo part and they could change it from Video to DVD

You can get videos converted at other places, too, besides Walgreens. Some stores include this as a service with their film developing. Some stores that convert videos specialize in doing the converting, and other related type projects, but are not parts of department stores and don't develop film. Maybe try the yellow pages, under videos, or a related term, or film developing, and check the ads. Good luck!

Costco does that service. Also, there will probably be merchants advertising on-line posted below this forum!

Get a Hauppage video receiver card and install it into your PC. Hook your camcorder via A/V cable to the back of the card....

There is a business called Preserve Your Memories that you can find on facebook. They specialize in what you are wanting to do and will even help with restoration of old images, editing, adding music, etc. Prices are very reasonable.

Get a device called Dazzle by Pinnacle. I think it cost about $30. Play your VHS and record it to your computer directly. You can then burn a DVD if you want.

Wal Mart can convert them for you. It costs a little bit of money, though.
