Copying VHS tapes to DVD

\015 I have quite a number of VHS tapes that are Macromedia copy protected. As the tapes are ageing fast I want to copy them onto DVDs for the long term. Does anyone know what is good hardware or software for doing this? I have read that a unit called ''Grex'' is the one to go for and then others say it's not that great. I'm all ears.\015

Answers :

Grex will do it but if you have a tv card in your pc you can just use windows moviemaker.
Any macromedia removal haerdware should work fine I had one years ago got it from popular electronics magazine Ad was like 50.00 way back then.

\015\012But why copy tapes especially if they are old, you can buy the old movies on DVD for cheap and save a ton of time and effort.
\015\012Most older movies you can buy for 5 to 10.00 bucks, and I know my time is worth way more than that.
\015\012
\015\012When you figure the time to copy the movie from tape then convert it to DVD format and then burn it to DVD, for a 2 hour movie you are looking at spending at least 3 hours. to buy the DVD at 5.00 is way worth it, if you copy these movies you will be saveing about 1.60 per hour of time you put in.
