Safe & Secure Storage
When adding MP4 digital files with your videotape to DVD order, your files are stored for free on one of two storage mediums. For orders of less than 5 tapes, your files are stored on a DVD data disc. This disc will contain all individual MP4 files from your tapes. You will be able to insert this disc into any computer with a disc drive to view and transfer your files directly to your computer's hard drive.
Orders of 5 tapes or more will receive a free USB flash drive. This flash drive will contain all individual MP4 digital files from your videotapes. For newer computers without a DVD drive, you will want to be sure to add a flash drive in order to access and view your files.

An Important Note About MP4 Files & USB Flash Drives

We highly recommend backing up your MP4 files directly to your computer or to a cloud service of your choice upon receiving your completed order. Over time, flash drives can become corrupt for any number of reasons, making it impossible to read the data that is stored on them. We keep all digital files on our system for up to 30 days after your order has been completed if extra copies are needed.

Why Use A Professional Video Transfer Service?

While it is possible to transfer video to DVD yourself, you may not be willing to give up multiple weekends of your time to complete the process. Because there is no other way to convert your tapes to digital, each of your tapes has to be run in real-time. That means a 2-hour tape will take 2 hours to convert to DVD or digital. Tapes can be much longer than that though, up to 6 hours in some cases.
 
It is also important to realize that tapes are subject to signal loss and damage. Transfer equipment is no longer made and spare parts are becoming scarce. Someday, there may not be a way to digitize your old tapes and the memories they hold. The best time to preserve your videotapes is now before it becomes too late.
 
Nostalgic Media can do all the hard work for you. With over 30 years of experience in video production and photography, we have the skills and expertise needed to turn your aging tapes into forever digital keepsakes for your family and future generations to enjoy.

Don't Wait To Convert Your Aging Videos

As tapes age, they become more vulnerable to a number of issues arising that could make it difficult to preserve the content that is on them. Tapes that have been stored in an environment exposed to heat and humidity will experience greater signal loss than those stored in a cool and dry environment. It is not a good idea to playback your video tapes in an old VCR you may still have laying around. This can lead to shedding, tape wear, and possibly tape damage that cannot be repaired.
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you combine my tapes onto a single DVD?

No. Each videotape 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.

Can I submit copyright material?

No. If you do not own the copyright of the material submitted, it is illegal for us to make copies. Any copyrighted material included in your transfer order will not be processed if it is available for purchase on DVD or as a digital download. Please call us for more details if you are unsure of your videotapes’ copyright status.

Will I be charged for blank tapes?

No. If you submit tapes that are blank or too damaged for us to convert, you will not be charged.

Can my damaged tapes be repaired?

Depending on the type of damage, Yes. There is a $20 repair charge for each damaged videotape. If we encounter any damaged tapes after you submit your order, we will contact you before any repairs are made/charged.

Do I get my tapes back?

Yes. All media will be returned with your completed order.
