Fequently Asked Questions

Q: Why transfer to DVD?

A: The DVD-video format has a life expectancy of at least 75 years. MiniDV Videotapes are still a magnetic medium and will fade away. DVDs are not recorded as a magnetic medium but by using a tiny laser, creating microscopic pits into the recording surface that lies underneath a protective clear coating. Most videotapes of any format will be unplayable 20 years after being recorded. A videotape wears out a little every time it is played. A DVD can be played over and over without wearing out at all because, while playing, nothing actually ever touches the playable part of a DVD except the light from the laser. The earlier your home videos are transferred to DVD, the better quality the original video images/sound are likely to produce..

Look what NBC news is saying:
"8mm, Hi8, Digital8, and VHS Video Becoming Obsolete & Will Not Be Transferable soon."


Q: Will your DVD be compatible with my DVD player?

A: Our DVD disc will play in almost all standalone DVD players in use today. If your DVD player was purchased after 2001 and can read DVD-R discs, it is very likely that your DVD player is compatible with our discs.

Q: Will the quality of my footage be enhanced?

A: For Archive DVD orders, the service is strictly a transfer service. Footage will not be enhanced. For home movie, custom events and prints to DVD, the footage and images can be enhanced, showing more vibrant colors and reduced scratches, dust and lint on the film surface. Additional charges may apply.

A: Yes! We do VHS to dvd as well as other dvd services in Live Oak, Schertz, Selma, Universal City, New Braunfels and all the way down south to Corpus Christi,
