One way I have done this is to use my VCR and my PVR. I playback the VHS and record it onto the hard drive of the PVR. Then I burn it directly in the PVR to a DVD-R disk. As an alternative if you have a video capture card in your PC is to capture the video that way and then burn to DVD with any standard burning software.

Just a note...some copyrighted VCR tapes...will not accurately permit capture/copying via the methods described.

I have a capture card which I have tried to use (years ago) for such...some copies are defeated by built-in copyright protection. I find that it's probably just easier/smarter to buy such on CD/DVD, rather than try to overcome the copyright mechanisms employed.
