Don't have a VCR anymore and need to know what's on your tapes?

We can help you with that too:

Option 1:

(1) $5.00 charge per tape, you can watch your tapes here (up to 10 mins. per tape) or you can leave them and we can preview the first 20 mins. of a tape to tell you what's on it...NO store will do that for you!

(2) $10.00 / day (+$50 Deposit) you can rent a portable combo TV/VCR (VHS) to preview your tapes.

(3) $15.00 / day (+$100 Deposit) you can rent a Digital8 or MiniDV camcorder to preview your tapes.

(Because we offer these services, all tapes  you give to us to transfer that are not blank and not copyrighted will be made into DVDs and charged regular price...please preview your tapes first, we do not "watch" tapes to see if they are duplicates of your other tapes)


Option 2: we play your Audio/Video Media for you for $30/hr. (1 hr. minimum charge)

If you have more than 6 items (viewing tapes is normally $5 each for up to 10 mins.), or you want to view/listen to them at length, we can also help you view your 8mm, Super 8 home movies, Betamax, VHS, Camcorder tapes,  Slides, or listen to your Cassettes, and Audio Reel-to-Reel tapes*

We have reasonable viewing fees of $30/hour (1 hour minimum), and after the first hour, we bill quarterly at $7.50 per 15 minutes. (example: 1 hour and 10 minutes would be billed at $45, not $60 like the other places)

*At least 1 Days notice is required...this cannot be done randomly at a moment's notice.

  • Standard DVDs,

  • PAL DVDs (Europe/Asia),

Our Guarantee:   Our DVDs are produced on new high-quality national brand DVD-R permanent media.   If your DVD player* FAILS to play any of our DVDs within 30 days, please return them and we will re-burn it for you on a DVD+R type at no additional charge.  Please check your DVD player's ability to play recordable DVDs by clicking: Compatibility.  Because the digital material we produce can take several hours per DVD or CD, and has the potential to be copied, we cannot offer money back, but we do make every effort to meet your requirements.   *Because of the many different operating systems, and video codecs requirements, these are designed to be played in DVD players, due to the additional processing time, a charge of $3 extra per DVD will be added to allow them to play in a computer.
