Years ago a used a Software named: Pinnacle Studio 9 for Transfer, cutting, and disk menues (today you get Version 23). In the package was a Hardware box with usb for the pc and cinch/s-vhs connector for the vhs-recorder. Time for the creating in the best possible Video for a 8,5GB DVD was 5 Hours. So I rescued my whole queen tapes to disks.
But on the HDD was left the whole movie.
Today you will find video-grabber for 30€, usb to cinch. When the vhs-recorder has an s-vhs-Output, use it, because of the better Signal.
Perhaps you can try a demo of a cutting-software before buying it.
