are so many advantages to transferring outdated media to DVD’s.

pre-set chapters that allow you to skip quickly through the
disc. And there is no rewinding. On average, a DVD will hold
about two hours of content. Since most VCR and Camcorder tapes

providing a cost effective way to archive footage that is
shorter in content. They are convenient to handle and much
easier to store.
also a good idea to make an additional copy to store in a
safe place. As stable as the technology is, a DVD in the hands
of someone not familiar with how to handle one, could render

& DVD+R’s) still do not play on every player or
computer and there are several different formats used worldwide.
too often people go through heartache when they realize they
have waited too long to make a copy of a once-in-a-lifetime

to share your family heritage with, transfer your tapes/film
to DVD before any more of your memories fade away. The small
investment made today will be priceless to those who will
treasure them for generations to come.
