My Dad had to buy a converter. That's literally all I remember and now we have hundreds of DVDs, except it's nearly impossible to find what you want haha.

Walmart used to offer a VHS to DVD option... Won't hurt to ask em. If you have a ton of VHS tapes, it would probably be cheaper to buy your own conversion software/hardware. I have 2 different software/hardware convertors that use my computer to record and burn the DVD. One from Roxio and another from Honestech...

you can get a VHS/DVD player relatively on the cheap these days. My grandfather had one for the sole purpose of transferring his old war VHS movies to DVD. I had to teach him how to do it, and it's not all that hard to do. You'll just want to make sure the model you purchase can actually do it.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

You could try this. Its probably the cheapest option if you still have a working VCR.

Back in the day you could do this at Walgreens, CVS, photo shops, etc... as others have said, either buy a VHS > DVD deck or haul them all into a store that does it.

Just a suggestion, if you have a decent computer and a VCR with an "ok" video output (such as S-Video). I'd recommend "ripping" them to a digital format with a video capture card and storing them that way. From this point, you can burn DVDs at your leisure. I'm slowly getting to a point where I have next to nothing in terms of physical media storage beyond a sever and backup cloud storage.

Forget the Walmart option... They're charging $24!

Using the Roxio software/hardware right now and it's real easy to use.
