What is the Capture CD to Digital Transfer Service?

While CDs are commonly used for music, in the early 2000s they were also a popular choice to transfer VHS home movies, videotapes, film, family photographs, and other nostalgic memories to digital format at places like Costco or Walmart.

Since CDs are a digital format, they were a better choice than analog alternatives at the time. But now, CD players and compatible DVD drives have become more obsolete and there are better digital options available. Not only that, but compact discs are easy to scratch, which can damage your precious memories.

Capture will convert CD memories into digital format, including your home movies, videos, and photographs stored as data on compact discs. Our service is not designed for audio files or music CDs but we can preserve your memories as high-quality digital files that can be stored on your Mac or Microsoft computer, Apple iPhone, hard drive, or in the cloud on iCloud, Google Photos, or Dropbox.

Plus, having digital files of your CD memories allows you to easily share your memories with loved ones using social media or email for playback on applications like iTunes or Windows Media Player. Finally, when you convert CD to digital, you can use video editing software to improve the quality or even combine old footage with new to create new memories to cherish.

How Capture Can Transfer Photos and Videos in CDs to Modern Digital Format?

While your CDs won’t last forever, the photo and video memories contained in them can last for generations when you use our premium digitization service.

What Options Can I Use to Convert CD to Digital?

There are several options for transferring your CD files into digital format including both DIY and done-for-you services.

CD Ripping Software

If your computer already has a CD drive, then you can simply rip CDs and transfer the files straight to your computer's hard drive using software programs. Software options like Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning 2 are easy to use and can convert CD to digital formats like WAV files, WMA files, AAC files, and MP3 files for preferred playback. Some of these programs also offer additional features like the ability to rotate and crop photos or enhance sound. The problem is that these options usually compress files, which can compromise the quality of your digital memories.


  • Affordable (if you already have a CD drive)
  • Easy to use


  • Quality isn’t great (especially with compressed files)
  • Time-consuming because you can only transfer 1 CD at a time
  • May only work for some CDs

External CD to Digital Converter

If your computer doesn’t have a compact disc drive, then you will have to use an external CD drive to connect to your computer to upload the files. While you can find options on Amazon for as little as $20, be careful because they are often targeted at tech-savvy users. Furthermore, many are primarily designed to convert music into digital audio. While they are great for converting your music collection, they may not work as well for your photographs and home movies.


  • Faster than other options (can use a pop-up to drag and drop)
  • Affordable


  • May require some tech-savvy knowledge or tutorials
  • May lose quality, particularly with photos, videos, and larger file sizes
  • You still need a media and music player to view your CD memories
