Is it possible to connect my PC to my VCR and copy a movie onto a VCR tape. I have taken a home movie on my DV camera and want to copy it onto a VHS tape. Usually I would do this through my DV camera but it is away being serviced and will not be back for several weeks. I have edited the movie in Video wave and it is ready to transfer.
If this can be done can anyone please explain to me what I need to do. I am running WindowsXP home edition.
Many thanks.:)

If you have a video card with TV-Out capability, it's possible. If you don't have that capability, it's not, at least without spending a bunch of money on a VGA <-> TV converter.

Thanks for your reply. I know this is a dumb question but how do I know if I have this connection, what should I look for.
Thanks:eek:
