There are lots of gizmos that are used for that. They are basicly an adapter that you plug to your computer by an USB port and has some video inputs where you plug in the VCR. Then you have to play the VHS while the computer records. Another opcion for you (probably not so good) is to pay someone to do that for you, as there are lots of places that do especificly that.

Most of the good TV tuner cards have a cable in jack. Plug your VCR into the card using the jacks and then tell the card to record and it will make a file for you. You pick the format and name. Then use DVD burning software like Nero to make a disc. It takes a lot of hard drive space but that is usually not a problem now days.

You will find places on line who will do this for a fee.

Look at VHF DVD-R combo units. You can also get a DVD-R and connect your VCR to it. Or you can get a video capture card or USB device to connect your VCR to your PC and burn your DVDs there.
