Converting VHS video tapes to DVD
DVDs take up less space so they are easier to store and send, and they’re more durable than VHS cassette tape. DVD recordings are also more versatile and not susceptible to wear and tear when regularly watched.
VHS to DVD conversion isn't very difficult, and can be very rewarding. Watching old VHS tapes converted to DVD on a large LED, LCD or plasma TV can bring back a lot of fond memories.
One way you can convert your recordings is by paying a company to do it for you, but if you have several recordings you wish to transfer to DVD, it's more cost-effective to convert them from VHS yourself. Video transfer companies charge about £6 per VHS tape.
In this short video, Which? shows you two ways of converting VHS tapes to DVD, and explains the kit you need to buy.
