Ask Amigos Question - Converting VHS tapes to DVDs

I am converting VHS tapes to DVDs, and I have questions about the cataloging of the DVDs. Do I just change our record in our ILS to match the new format, or do I need to create a new OCLC record? If I need to make a new record, do I add a 533 note to say I converted the VHS to the DVD format, much like a photocopy of a book?
