VHS came before DVD's, VHS's are videos that contain film to play inside of VHS player. VHS also need to be re winded to start from the beginning.

DVD's came later, DVD's are a disk that don't need to be re winded at all can have multiple language and subtitle's depending on what you want. DVD's can be played in portable DVD players

Converting a VHS to a DVD requires special equipment because VHS tapes are analog and DVDs are digital. A video transfer service can perform a VHS to DVD conversion for you. At StashSpace.Com the transfer is just $6.95.
