I am thinking of getting software to convert VHS Pre-recorded VHS tapes (movies that I purchased when VHS was the "in" thing) to a format that is downloaded on my PC . Then I want to take the downloaded VHS movies and burn it to a DVD so I can watch them again at home. What free DVD burning software would be the best for this application?

Plenty of free burning software around but none that I'm aware of that can convert VHS tapes to DVD.

For that you'll need commercial (ie non-free software and appropriate cables) such as this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/VHS-to-DVD...

A much easier method is to buy a "combo" VHS/DVD recorder which can do the job without using a PC. Read this:

Be aware that there still exists legal ramifications to copying commercial VHS tapes even though the format is now obsolete.

Yet another option is take your take your VHS tapes to a store which has a "copy to DVD" service, but they won't copy commercial VHS tapes as it's illegal, they'll only copy your home movies that are on VHS such as recorded weddings from 20/30 years ago.
