converting VHS to dvd.

My wife has several family video tapes (approx 15-20 yrs), she would like these tapes converted to dvd format. We have a new system with cd/dvd burner. We went to a computer shop they told us to buy this unit USB 2.0 Audio & Video grabber, also bought DVD-Rw and DVD+Rw. I dont believe this unit will do what we want it to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx.

What exactly did you get?

I assume it has A/V connections and software with it. More than likely, you put a VHS tape into your VCR, connect the VCR to this grabber device, and capture the video that way. Then, once it's on e the computer, the software will allow you to convert it to a format for DVD viewing.

FWIW, This looks like a very nice piece of hardware. I have no experience with it but if it's anything like their cd/dvd writers, then it is a top notch piece of hardware.

I would suggest using either dvd-r or dvd+r discs instead of the RW discs.

Please be more specific on your doubts. It seems simple enough to hook up.
