  • "Very thrilled

    with the outcome of the 70 year old slides that you converted to digital files for me. The end product was a lot better than I expected. This was the first time I have seen pictures of my father from when he was a young boy in the 1950s. He passed last year and these keepsakes are very treasured."

    Stephen S.

  • "I was very pleased

    with Nostalgic Media. First, leading up to placing my order, I called them and got someone on the phone immediately, no 1 minute recording. My questions were answered and I submitted my material and payment. The sending was quick and I was notified of shipping dates. Would use their services again."

    Tom R.

  • "Nostalgic media delivered

    just as they advertised. They converted my 55+ year old 8mm reels into digital media and now my family can relive some golden moments that I had feared were lost to memory. They were fast and gave me a product better than what I had hoped for. I recommend them without hesitation."

Common Questions About Our Hi8 to Digital Service

  • No. Each video tape is converted to a separate archival grade DVD. We create our DVDs according to industry standards for Video and Data DVDs. Our DVDs will play on nearly any stand-alone DVD player. If your DVD player was manufactured after 2001 and reads DVD-R media (the most common type), it’s likely to play the DVD. Some Blu-Ray players will not play any type of recordable media, please consult your player's owner's manual to determine compatibility with DVD-R type media.
