In less than 30 days, you will receive your new digital copies as well as your original videotapes in the same condition (or better if they require repairs or cleaning).

Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to convert old videotapes to digital on your own, then a digital converter machine is the best option.

There are different types, but most are targeted to tech-savvy users who already know how to use a Mac or Windows computer.

In addition, some may require adapters and you will still need a VCR, camcorder, or other playback device.

Most digital converters will only transfer at normal playback speed, so it will take approximately 2 hours to convert 1 tape (after learning how to use the software and equipment properly).
