Hi and Welcome![QUOTE=birdowl;2527076]trying to find what would be best to move my real to real music to CD. [/quote]I am not sure what "real to real music means. Am I correct if I assume these are on audio tape?
If so, you might have a look at the tutorials of the Audacity project: http://manual.audacityteam.org/index.php?title=Tutorials
Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net) is a powerful free recording tool.

Also have some vhs tape that I would llike to move to a DVD.
This is not so easily to accomplish. You need additional hardware, either a TV card with [I]video in[/I], or some piece of dedicated hardware (often called videograbber). The videos are then recorded to the HDD. Next step would be the conversion process, since DVD video requires a certain format (MPEG2). You should have a powerful computer for that.

The easiest way would be to use a combined VHS/DVD recorder. In that case, no computer is involved.

I may also mention, that commercial VHS tapes can’t be transferred that way without additional hardware because of the Macrovision protection that is used.

I have had trouble moving music on the computer to a CD. I get an error when burning the disk.
What error message exactly? Please provide additional information (my crystal ball needs some maintenance at the moment).
