the best way to transfer your vhs video is to use the canopus video capture device
this device conevrt the vhs analog video signal into digital
you must have a firewire card installed in your pc
you may have dropped frames if you try to capture your vhs video via your usb port since usb is too slow
yes, the hvs video is of a very low resoltion something like the vcd with a resolution of 352x288 but there is a possibility to have dropped frames (lost frames)
if you have too many dropped frames your video will be too jerky !
i wouldn't recomment roxio or nero simply because you can do the job with less money if you buy any usb video capture device http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xusb+video+capture+device.TRS0&_nkw=usb+video+capture+device&_sacat=0
you can use your windows xp movie maker to capture your vhs video, best results with the s-video connection !
there so many free programs to convert your windows media files to mpg-2 9dvd) and burn your dvd'shttp://www.nchsoftware.com/goldenvideos/index.html?gclid=CI_Msfi7rcYCFc7HtAodbXoDNA
some usb video capture drives are not working under windows xp service pack 2 nor under windows 7/8https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Vhs+to+dvd+via+windows+movie+maker
