Default Where can I have a DVD made back into a VCR tape?

Hi!

I know this is a strange question, but I want to have a DVD converted back to VCR format so an older cousin can view some old family movies.

Does anyone know where in Rock Hill or Fort Mill I can have this done?

Thanks!

I don't know, but it would probably be cheaper to just buy them one of those portable DVD players.

Yes, interesting question.
I have a DVD recorder to put my VHS tapes on DVD.
All you need is a DVD player, and you can find one on Craigslist, maybe for $15.
Then play it on your TV and let your VCR record it, as it would a TV program.
One of the handiest devices I've ever owned, is my treasured VCR.

Could the cousin just buy a cheap DVD player and watch the DVD's?

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. My cousin has decided to get a cheap DVD player, so now all I need to do is get a copy of the DVD.

Thanks for all of your help!
