    Is it worth it to buy a VHS converter to change all your VHS' to DVD?

    And if you do, what do you do with it when you're done with it? Is it a waste?

    No, buy the Sony Multi Function DVD Recorder Model # VRD-MCS I have one and it is awesome. I have put every VHS tape on disc and all of my pictures for card reader in cell phone and from my digial camera. It works great and very easy to use. Let me know if you get one and if you like it. I sure do

    I think it just depends on the individual. If you like watching movies and don't want to spend extra money buying all new DVDs it makes logical sense to convert your older VHS'.

    I have quite a few VHS recordings of my live performances and productions that I really need to convert to DVD, so yes, I absolutely recommend purchasing a converter, and if you do, please feel free to contact me and let me know how you like it!

    That all depends. Some of the VHS to DVD converters you can buy are full VCR-like units. If you already own a VCR, you can buy a small box to sit between it and your computer which will mean you don't have to splash your cash on a full-size box that you don't really need for other things. This will allow you to just record the output from your existing VCR machine.

    As a bonus, these boxes could also be used to record programmes from a DVR such as a TiVo or Sky+ box for archiving on your computer.
