Trying to copy VHS tapes to DVD using a Liteon LVW-1101hc1

I heard of disabling Macrovision and updating the firmware but I had no luck. I also don’t want to spend $100 dollars on DVD RED, which is suppose to remove both Mac and css encoding, but I am very skeptical about this kind of hardware. The main reason I bought a stand alone recorder was to make copies of my daughters old Disney VHS tapes. They are getting worn out and I would like to preserve them. does anyone have any Ideas on what I can do to make this happen. I also don’t want to run my VCR through my computer and back it up that way. I lose so much quality and time. Thanks for the help
