    Have been looking for a program to transfer my VHS tapes to DVD but the only two that I have found to research the other users don't seem to have the highest regard for either too complicated or no support the two that I have checked on are Dazzle Video Creator Platinum and Pinnacle Studio MovieBox DV. Any ideas, help?

    If you're not doing copy protected VHS, you will probably be happier with a combo VCR-to-DVD recorder. It's simple and the results are acceptable, given how terrible VHS is anyway.

    Next is a DVD recorder hooked up to your VCR. A little more work because you have to shut it off.

    Then you get into a whole array of video converters, either internal PCI bus, USB, or firewire, along with software to do it in your PC. You can now edit out all the junk like the 30 minute footage of your camera pointed at the ground while you walk thru Disney World. LOL, I left my miniDV camera running last month and got 30 minutes of black inside a camera bag. Maybe I'll add music to it.
