VHS to DVD
« on: Tuesday June 30, 2009, 08:06:54 PM »
Where would I take old videos to be converted to DVD?  We don't have the hardware to do it ourselves.

Hmmmm... ™

I'd think that'd be classed a specialist service, and shops that offer it as a service may be few and far between :(

I've found a few places that might be worth looking at..

The Shoebox price is $30 per tape, so if you are doing lots of tapes, it would be worth looking at something like

(not that I'm encouraging you to go to Walmart, but it's the only store I know that would sell one, and is up the road from you...)

Thanks, Matt.

Ouch.  What I have are six dance recital videos.  I took a little trip down Memory Lane last week and watched what I consider the highlights (that'd be my dances and DD's dances).  I haven't watched them in a while, but I'd love to have them converted to DVD.
