    Almost time to move again - I had a question about old commercial VHS movies we have that are piling up. Would like to convert them to DVDs to save space. Can you actually use a VHS to DVD converter to transfer or convert commercially made movies? I'm sure this is probably somehow illegal - which I don't necessarily care about per se. I don't plan on selling the DVDs, I simply want to convert them and then sell or throw out the VHSs. But, is there anything specific on the VHSs that would disable/disallow a transfer to be done? Also, does anyone have any suggestions about a product that can do this? I don't want software or a cable. I specifically want a machine type of converter like this:

    Thanks for your input
