Can you download tapes from an analog VCR to a computer to transfer them to a DVD?

Yes. Your sound card must have the proper inputs for this. Talk to the folks at the computer stores. Talking is still free !....BB You need a video capture card to convert the analog signal from your VCR to digital. These capture cards range quite a bit in quality but are readily available online and in computer electronics stores. However, if you are transferring home movies I recommend using a video transfer service so that you get the best quality. StashSpace.Com does a good job, lets you edit online before burning DVDs and is only $6.95 a tape.
