Hi,

Firstly, you will need:

  • The Video Cassette you want to copy
  • A VCR to play the cassette
  • A Blank CD-R to record the captured video
  • A computer with a video capture card (like AVerDVD EZMaker Video Capture Card or Pyro 1394DV Digital Video Capture Card, etc) installed. You will also need a CD-R/W drive in your computer to burn the resulting movie file to a CD.
  • If you are purchasing a video capture card, they usually come with the necessary software.
  • Cables to connect your VCR to the PC. If you are purchasing a card like in 3 above, you should receive the cables with your card.
  • Software for converting VCR video to avi or mpeg.

Secondly, to convert the video-cassette you should do the following-

  • Install the video capture card in your PC – usually in a PCI slot.
  • Connect the VCR output to the card input on your PC.
  • Power on your PC and the VCR.
  • Start the video capture software on your computer, Pop in the video-cassette into the VCR and follow the instructions as per the software's manual.
  • This should convert the video-cassette into a digital movie file on your computer's hard disk.
  • Convert video to avi or mpeg
  • Next, use the CD burning software which came with your computer to burn this movie onto the CD-R.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!
