You didn't mention whether your VHS movies were commercial tapes or your own. If your own, and they aren't commercial tapes with copy-guard, then you can buy a combo DVD Recorder/VHS player that allows you to copy tapes to DVD directly. If you want to by-pass copy-guard, then the only option I can think of is to ingest the VHS into your computer using an analog-to-digital converter, and after acquiring one, this typically requires that you upgrade your computer and get software, at least if you have a PC. Macs come pre-equipped with most of what you need. But discussions of how to bypass copy-guard isn't allowed, so I can't tell you any more, otherwise I'll be banished.
