If you still have a lot of old home movies on VHS tapes, then you have probably been wondering what you can do to get rid of them. They take up a lot of space and, since they are on magnetic tape they wear out over time due to factors such as heat and moisture. So, how will you transform the old tapes to digital? How can you get rid of the junk?
Well, you can buy a dual machine that will not only play those old great home movies but also convert them to DVD so that you will be able to clear away some of the old relics to make more room. And it does not have to be hard at all. In fact, it can be as easy as pushing two simple buttons on the machine. Follow these steps.
- You need to realize that there are some VHS DVD combo players that will only play DVDs and not record them. So to convert the VHS to DVD you need a machine that will be able to play the old VHS videos and then record them to DVD as well.
- You need to buy something with some value – not just anything. If you have very, very old videos, then they are probably already showing some signs of deterioration. This means you will need to handle them with care. The experts say that these combo recorders are at the top of the list.
- Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK ($240)
- Sony RDR-VX560 ($180)
- Toshiba DVR670 ($250)
- The last thing to do is to find a good price for the model you want. I suggest that you buy your a refurbished model which was repaired by a technician for resale. These are always the best price for the best value.
Well, that is how easy it could if you were to do a VHS to DVD transfer. Good luck!
