If they're pre-recorded then I'd just bite the bullet and replace with DVD, Almost everything ever released is available with a bit of searching and older material is cheeap as chips AND it'll be much better quality than a copy.

If they're home movies then you're biggest problem is going to be getting an NTSC (American) vhs player, There are a few multistandard players around but they're like hen's teath. If you've 100 to do and don't want to be faffing around with technology then a combined VHS/DVD recorder is the way to go BUT the VHS bit MUST BE NTSC (the DVD part doesn't matter as that's an international standard).

I have a couple of DVD recorders that am willing to let go, and also have a couple of elelectronic bits specially for doing tapes etc through to the computer.  Then dvd's can be made.

Available to go if you are interested.

zebra101 whereabouts are you? I have a machine specifically for copying tapes to DVD. Not out in Brittany for a few weeks yet though. Willing to lend out to see if it is what you want.

If you have a Video player that plays Region 1 tapes, a DVD recorder and the tapes are not copy protected it is very straightforward.
