How to Convert VHS to DVD

Convert VHS to DVD?  Why?

If you were alive in the 1990s and the early 2000s, chances are you took some VHS videos.  You know VHS tapes, the kind you used to be able to rent in video stores.

Ah, memories captured forever on VHS tape.

Wrong!   Those memories about as safe as . . . anybody remember 8-track tape? That’s right, the VHS player is going out of style. Magnetic tape?  For permanent memories?  On a planet with a magnetic field?  Ha ha ha, that’s a good one.

Here’s a kit to convert VHS to DVD.

To convert VHS to DVD you are going to need a VHS player or a camcorder that plays VHS tapes. I would suggest that you take good care of your VHS player if you haven’t yet converted your VHS tapes. Have you shopped for 8-track tape players lately?  That’s right.  Maybe if you got lucky at a garage sale.  VHS is going the same way that 8-track tape did.  The way of the dinosaurs.

So carefully locate your VHS player or camcorder.

Then perform these steps:

  • Install the Honestech VHS to DVD software on your computer.
  • Hook up your VCR (or camcorder) to the conversion box.
  • Connect the VHS to DVD conversion box to your computer via a USB port.
You play your VHS tapes back in real time (yes, it takes a little patience).

Keep in mind that you are saving your video memories from being trapped on 1990s technology.

What’s that worth?  Check the price.

Do you still have VHS tapes lying around?  Do you have a plan to keep your video memories alive?  Please comment!
