Here is how I do it.
DVD's I do in the computer. I use a free program called ripit4me. Go to their site and read up on how to use the programs. the other programs are their to download for free so you can ripit, shrink it and burn it. I don't use img. burn I use NERO.
DVD's can be done useing a SIMA video stabolizer. You need a DVD player and DVD recorder to do this. Last I knew you can get the SIMA from BESTBUY for about $100.
I have one and it works great.
VHS you can do with the SIMA or a Digital Video Stabilizer. I found this at MCM Electronics for about $20. This unit works good but will only do VHS tapes not DVD's.
remember if you are going to use your computer and ripit4me you also need to have
Ripit4me and installer
IMG> BURN (I USE NERO)
Hope this helpped you.
