You should be able to copy on the new vhs/dvd combos. If you can't find one, pm me and I can do it if the tape is sent to me. Thanks

I've done this with my home movies. Easiest way is what ercoach said. Once you have them on dvd, you can then rip the dvd to just about any imaginable format. If you don't have the combo dvd/vhs unit, you can always hook up a vhs player to a dvd recorder and get it done that way (that's how I did it).
Anyhow Al, if you can get them on dvd, you can send them to me and I can rip them for you since I have the software to do it, or I can step you through it if you want to learn how to do it yourself.

With the right video card you can take them straight from VHS to the computer for uploading. I do this all the time... Home movies. If you want you can send them to me and I can convert them into just about any kind of format. It dose take a lot of drive space. Until it gets compressed.

Coming from VHS tape, the analog resolution is going to be modest to begin with. Digitizing often degrades things a bit more. Retaining the maximum possible video quality can be tricky.
Whoever does the conversion to digital, please keep the final video compression to a modest level. There are so many over-compressed videos out there (You-tube, etc), and they are just painful to watch for very long.
Personally, I would rather wait twice as long for the download, and have 1/2 the headache from watching it.
Of course, this being Green Hulk, it is probably a safe bet that the results will be just fine! Just a little plug for good quality video...
