    There are numerous businesses that provide video transfer services, from home users... to high-end broadcast duplication facilities.



    Most camera stores offer video transfer services.

    Depending on how many tapes/hours of footage you want to convert, it can end up a very expensive exercise if you are paying by the minute.

    If you have a lot of tapes, it might be cheaper to by some hardware and DIY.

    If you have a DVD burner and software, all you need is a VHS player and a capture device.

    USB Composite capture devices can be very cheap .

    If you don't need to edit anything, then a stand-alone DVD recorder (and a VHS player) will be the fastest and simplest method.

    If you want the best-possible quality, use a professional duplication company, as they use commercial/broadcast quality equipment which corrects the timebase for the most stable pictures.

    Hope this helps.

    Just buy a vhs DVD burner combo. You may need to swap out the rw drive if it's a bit older. My LG one has a standard ide drive in it.

    They also have time base correction built in (needed for successful VHS rips. 1-4 hours per dvdr depending on quality settings

    LG DVD Recorder & VHS Combo - RC689D, I have a feeling they might still be in production, could be wrong, but worth a goggle at least
