If you just want to transfer VHS to DVD directly "with out download to HDD" then use Dazzle DVD Recorder ..... This is kind of plug and play simple.
I have the older version but It works great .

Hi and welcome to the Forums. First, it would depend on the condition of the Tapes. If they were stored properly and in good shape that is a start. Secondly, another factor in which speed they were recorded. If in the highest speed mode than it would be of the best quality. Before dubbing you should fast foward the tapes to the end and it should automaticaaly reverse and rewind. The reason for this is get the proper tension on the tape which helps with the quality. That having been said, hopefully you used a good quality tape to begin with. I have a combo Magnavox VHS / DVD that does a pretty good job of VHS to DVD transfer. as you can see there are a lot of factors that will determine how well the DVD copy will look, including the speed of which you dub it to the DVD ( they have multiple speeds just like the tapes.
