We have been able to record video tapes of old movies that we have so far with no issues. Version 5 of this product works too if your pc has Windows 7. Make sure your VCR has the red, white, and yellow video/sound ports on the back.

From the Honestech Users Manual: Record to media - this option is selected by default indicating you will be recording to a disc. Uncheck this option if you do not plan on burning anything to disc and/or when using the `Create Video_TS folder' option. Disc Name - use this option to create a name for your disc. The name will be visible when played on a computer or from the display interface on supported DVD players. Drive - use this option to select the disc drive that will burn your disc. Burn Speed - use this option to specify the speed at which your disc drive will burn your disc. Tip: Slower burn speeds will typically yield better disc results. If you encounter burning problems, try lowering the burn speed. Speeds can then be raised incrementally with each successful burn. Create Video_TS folder - use this option to create a Video_TS folder on your hard drive in the location specified. A Video_TS folder is the file structure or directory typically burned to DVD discs that contains the DVD movie. *Additional software titled "Burn Video Folder to Disc" has been provided in the VHS to DVD 7.0 program folder for burning any Video_TS folders to a DVD disc should you choose to do so at a later time. Temp Folder - use this option to select the temporary folder used during the burning process. The Advanced mode uses the temporary folder to convert your video to disc format. Once burned to disc, the converted video is purged from the temporary folder.

i have a 30gig drive i would think if you have 500mb left on your drive you need to put some pics and songs or movies on a flash drive. the program puts it on the hard drive to compile it and then burns it to a dvd. i use 3 flash drive to store pics and movies. keeps the hard drive free.
