I have home movies on VCR Tapes. I have laptop which has dvd/rom compact disc.

How can I transfer the movies onto the diskette so I can watch it on the road?

To transfer from vcr to your hard drive you need a video capture card. Since you have a laptop, probably need to get one that connects thru the USB port. You will need software program to capture and render the video, than burn to DVD.
I use Pinnacle Studio, and a PCI device. Have made several DVDs and they turned out very nice. Not hard to do, just takes a bit to get used to the software.
There are also programs which can capture and place on CD in VCD format, but your DVD player has to be able to play this format to work.
