To copy a video to DVD, you'll need something to play the old video on. If the tape is in a format that you don't have a player for, send it away to a company that converts videotapes to DVD. Even if you have an old VCR, be careful if your tape is irreplaceable as tapes can easily get damaged in players. Stand-alone DVD recorders are like the VCR under your TV, except they use rewritable DVDs instead of tapes. Simply connect the tape player's video and audio outputs to the inputs of the DVD recorder, put in a recordable DVD disc, and then hit Play on the tape player and Record on the DVD recorder. The DVD recorder then records your video straight to DVD. This is hassle-free, but the you can't do any editing.
