transferring VHS tapes to external hard drive

Can anyone recommend a good FREE software package that will transfer my old VCR tapes onto Hard Drive?

I ordered this from the Internet with the USB and leads. connects fine...installed software...but the picture keeps freezing or jumping up and down, with the sound remaining perfect when I play a video tape (video test screen seems fine before this).. so I guess it is poor software that came with it?

hi,
I bought a similar item from Amazon, a Diamond VC500
came with Cyberlink PowerDirector which works pretty well,
not sure if the software can be obtained free but I see on there website they say its from 8 euro per month perhaps subscribe for a month to get all you need done,
the software which came with my item doesn't require subscription but it did require a serial key which came inside the box.

could also try this:

OBS should work and has plenty of features, and it's free.
