Baja Oklahoma

I have this on VCR and was wondering if these machines for burning it to DVD are worth it and work well.

This is a HBO movie that they now longer show, I'm worried the tape might turn to dust one day.

Can't believe it's 30 years old.

Thanks

Well the problem would be finding one. If you find one new, it'll be too pricey, and if it's used, it may not work well.
I bought one years and years ago because I had several to burn so it was worth it. The first one I bought that was cheaper, didn't work 100% of the time, so I bought a more pricey one that always worked. So that's why I say used would be iffy and new would not be worth it.
Have you checked to see if you can buy the movie? Might be cheaper that way.

I bought my mom a Sony DVD burner for transferring all her old videos over.
It does not copy a copyrighted DVD or VHS tape.

Now...... those burners are almost extinct. I paid almost $700 for it years ago.

I didn't find that movie in the regular DVD locations...... just the VHS version but there are many places selling that DVD. $10-15 is probably a worthwhile investment. Do a google search.
