If you have a computer that writes DVDs, you can also buy a VHS to DVD adapter/converter. CHEAP. I use one of these. Its a USB adapter with RCA jacks to hook between your computer and VCR. Since flash drives are so cheap now, you can record Your shows onto your PC and store them on a flash drive. I have many TV series stored on flash drive. I did this because I have 2 DVD recorders, and that have many times rejected new DVD +-Rs. My PC rarely ever does that. It cost about the same to put good quality onto DVD-Rs as it does a flash drive, and it's easier to store, plus you can copy allot faster onto another DVD from flash drive. Here is an eBay link. And one more thing. There is allot of free editing software u can get online, or buy if you want, that is far superior to the editing programs in these DVD recorders. But if u have a dVD recorder I would still keep it because its good for copying off of TV.

I'm still even buying the occasional tape. Recently I bought Peanuts specials on VHS for pennies each, several of which are not yet available on DVD.

Allow me to disagree. As long as you still have a running VCR, VHS tapes still have their use.

I have to admit that VHS does have it's advantages over DVD. You scratch a DVD and it's done. The player won't load it. So when cleaning DVDs you have to be sure you don't wipe them with something abrasive. They are easy to ruin. VHS tape can break, but can be repaired easily. With some DVD movies, you have to let it play through crap you don't want to see before it gets to the movie. With Movies on VHS you can Fast Forward through that crap.

I still use my VCR. I don't feel like getting everything on DVD that I have on VHS only to have DVD's go out of style. I'd be dead before I could convert everything.

my VHS tapes are in boxes - i wish i could say that I do something interesting with them like make castles for the cats to play in, but they are way too far in the back of a storage closet.

what i have a problem with is what to do with all of my VCR's - i realized that I haven't even used any of them in at least the last 5 years when i bought a new TV and had no way to even hook it up with not enough RCA component inputs. So I now have three of them all piled up in the cat's room for them to play with.

I used to rip them apart. Later I donated them to thrift shops. Today, I save them as collectibles, although Flying Dutchmans has a good idea.

Same here, way too many to convert to DVD plus I'd wear out my machine. I've got mine stacked on shelves in all 3 bedrooms. I also didn't label some of them so I have no clue what's on them.

Plus I do have some VHS movies of Clint Eastwood during the 1950's and they have never been released on DVD so I have to have my VCR to watch them. lol

I can't get in touch with the person who video taped my wedding. For all I know he's no longer around, so I'm hoping I can find someone to do it without the legalities.
Release form?? Isn't the tape in your hands now. I am confused why would they need a release form?

I had a bunch of Vhs tapes too but I threw a good portion out. They were movies and I felt i could see the film somewhere else. The movies I had are always popping up on a station. But I did keep tapes I made myself of my family when I had a 8 millimeter camcorder and I did put a few on a vhs tapes. I have the last few tapes squirrelled away in box. I would indeed like a new format to put them on. I had the same problem with my 50 cassettes of music. If it was simple to do, I would do it myself. But then I think How long do you want to hang on to stuff. Photographs, another situation, the list goes on.

Yea if anything they'd want a release form from her in case something happened while they were transferring the tape. Once the tape is in your hands, you should be able to do what you want with it.
