Sure there are a number of ways. One EZ way is to connect the VCR to a DVD recorder (video stablizer might be needed). To the DVD recorder it is simply a video source (digital or analog makes no difference). If it is just a few tapes (and you don’t want to buy a DVD recorder) try a google search for the the movies (if movies) now on DVD.
Using [U]only[/U] software, well NO you need some way to capture the VCR video to your PC before you can burn to a DVD. I have done it with a Plextor ConvertX px-m402u but using my DVD recorder was less trouble.
Also there are companies who will do the task for you but it may cost ~ $10-12 per tape with shipping.
