I have a question inshallah about my video recorder. I am hoping to record an event soon and I have a tape in the recorder ready to go but if I wanted to make a copy on DVD for someone is that possible? If so, how??

Tape? What on earth is that??
I can't believe anyone is still using these things.
Converting tape to DVD is possible, but why not just get a digital recording device to begin with? Save yourself the hassle, and it will actually be half decent quality that people won't mind watching it.الشعب يريد خلافة من جديد

Well depending on what kind of tape it is, best if you can give as much detail about what you want to do as you can.
If it is a tape from a video camera, and the camera has firewire, then you can connect it to your PC (probably also require the installation of a firewire card).
If it is a VHS cassette, then you can either get (or find a friend who has one) a combo DVD/VHS recorder, which will let you convert it to DVD, or else get a capture card, which you then connect your VHS player to.
Either way, you'll probably have to incur some cost, and it might be best just to get it done at one of those places that do it. You might also consider getting a new video camera, as they're fairly cheap nowadays, and they are all digital, so converting to DVD is a snap.
If you have a smartphone, then you might wanna consider using that, as its video quality will most likely be far better than any tape-era camera. You can probably pick up a tripod for it easily enough.
