Converting your old video tapes and movie film to a digital format will make your footage more accessible and easy to view at anytime. If you select the hard drive option, we will load all of your video files to an external hard drive. You may include an external hard drive (with necessary cables) along with your materials when sending your order to us. If you don't have an external hard drive, you may purchase one from us for $119.95. Our 500 GB hard drives can be formatted for MAC or PC computers.



Using your video footage on computer


To make this process easier for you, we offer the option of a flash drive or hard drive. We will load the video files from your footage to external USB drive. You can plug the external USB drive to your computer and save all of the video files for use. The video format depends on your material type, and the transfer level you choose. A 2-hour video tape transferred at the premium level will require about 1 GB of space on your hard drive. A 2-hour video tape transferred at the expert level will require about 16 GB of space on your hard drive.
