They will come with the software to run them. You plug your VCR into the capture card inputs. Open the software that came with the card, read the instructions, and save the VHS movies to your hard drive. You then burn them to DVD media.
And you can also connect a TV antenna, satellite, or cable to the card and you have a Tivo.
Another option is a USB capture card. I have this one http://www.hauppauge.com/html/usb_data.htm and do exactly what you are wanting to do.
