How to transfer video from VCR to hard disk?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everyone,

I don't know whether you guys have heard about VCRs. VCRs were played in a VCR (Video cassette records) players and were used to record and play video on TV, before the CD, VCD, DVD generation. Some people I spoke to had heard of these, but didn't know how to help my problem.

My dad has many oldies (classic songs and movies) in VCRs. He asked me whether I could put them into a DVD. I know how to create DVDs, but the only problem is how to connect the VCR player to my PC and to transport the video (VCR) to the hard disk. 

Please tell me how to connect the VCR player to the PC, any hardware requirements and if there is, any software requirements as well. I would appreciate it greatly.
