You probably have a box or two of old VHS home movies gathering dust in the closet. This media format, as well as the VCRs used to play them, are a dying technology. The likelihood of a VHS comeback is slim to none, so why not take an afternoon to transfer these videos to your computer?
In this How To, I'll show you how to archive those videos to a digital format.
First, locate a VCR. If you don't have one already, check your thrift stores or check eBay. You shouldn't have to pay more than $20 for a used VCR in decent condition. If you're really in a pinch, you can still buy VCRs new, but they typically run around $100.
