How to convert VHS tapes to DVD

DearREADERS,
Every now and then CNET comes up with another free class that I simply must tell you about. This one is important if you wish to preserve the VHS tapes. YES, I know that the lifespan of DVDs is also suspect. You'll just have to keep converting to the newest technology until you pass these down to the younger generation. Why not do it NOW? Pass out copies during the next family get-together?


HOW TO CONVERT VHS tapes to DVD

"Get complete step-by-step instructions for preserving your old videos on DVD in this FREE class. You've spent years carefully recording birthdays, weddings, vacations, and more on videotape. Now the tapes are fading fast and VCRs are becoming dinosaurs, abandoned in favor of digital-format DVDs.

The solution: Convert your VHS tapes into digital format and burn them to DVDs. It's easier than you think, and CNET's FREE new course delivers complete instructions on how to do it. You'll also learn how to enhance your original tapes by editing the audio and video, adding still images and transition effects, and deleting unwanted scenes."

NOTE: "Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from October 17 to November 4 , we will post a new assignment that relates to a particular lesson."
