that records from DVD to VHS or VHS to DVD (probably on e-bay under vintage electronics), you could simply play the VHS tape and record it to a DVD. I have one and that's the way I cross record some of my VHS tapes.
In addition, there are services out there that will take any recorded media and put it on a DVD at a price, depending on the volume of tapes, or other media. They would have much more sophisticated analog to digital conversion equipment than I have.
Another way and I've done some like this too with my digital video camcorder, if you have a digital camcorder that records to an SD or micro SD card, you can play the VHS tape on the VHS recorder and set up the camcorder to record the VHS video and sound off of your tv screen and speakers . If the VHS tape is of decent quality, this works pretty well. All you have to do then is transfer the recorded video off of the SD card to your computer and then burn a DVD disk of the video file. If you want to get fancy, if you have a video editing program (I use Cyberlink Powerdirector) you can edit the digital video file and do all sorts of fancy things with it. Need a pretty up to date and fast computer to do it though.
See the attached link for a good article on converting VHS tape to digital format. Good luck
