Media Transfer FAQs


Can you still transfer tape if it is broken?

Yes, there's no need to panic. It is normal for VHS tapes to degrade over time, so we offer a minor repair service as standard during our VHS to DVD conversions at DVD Creation. If your tapes require a complete strip down we will inform you of this with an estimated cost.

How long will the transfer process take?

The time it takes to transfer your media will all depend on our current schedule. However we aim to have your VHS to DVD conversion ready in just a week. If you have a deadline, please let us know and we will do our best to meet it.

Can you transfer media to a digital format?

Yes, we can transfer your media to any digital file including AVI, WMV, MPEG or MPEG4 and store the files on a USB flash drive and send this to you. We recommend storing copies on a storage drive for safekeeping. We use SanDisk and Kingston storage devices which are renowned for being durable and long lasting.

Why do I need to transfer my VHS tapes?

Unfortunately VHS tapes aren't long lasting. VHS tapes use magnetic charges to store data, however this weakens over time. Demagnetisation and moisture can also degrade the quality of your video. Transferring your tapes to DVD or a digital file with us at DVD Creation will ensure that your special memories are 100% safe and secure, however many times you want to revisit them.

How can I make sure my tapes reach you safely?

We recommend that you send all of your media by signed for delivery. We will send your media and our DVDs back through the same service. If you are local to Boston, Lincolnshire you can drop off your media at our studio and collect your media when all transfers have been completed.

What media can you convert?

We can can convert: cine film to DVD, video to DVD conversion, 8mm to DVD, Super 8 to DVD, audio tape to CD, reel to reel to CD and camcorder tapes to DVD.

Media Transfer Testimonials


Priceless memories brought back to life....

My parents talked about getting the old cine and videos onto DVD for years but never did anything about it as they presumed the cine reels after 40 years would be too far gone. I contacted Steve who was really informative from my first call. He put my mind at ease and we went ahead with converting cine, cassette and a video all to DVD. The results were far better than we could ever imagine. To see my grandparents who haven't been with us for 25 years was so touching. All our old memories brought back to life. So amazing I ordered extra DVDs for my Auntie who was on lots of the cine for her to watch with her family. Steve happily duplicated and posted this for me. I can't recommend Steve enough and we are so happy to have all our old family times saved for us all to watch again. D.H   |     |  

Heartily recommended!...

Steve at DVD Creation turned around an urgent job for me in a little over a day, transferring an hour long VHS of my wedding day and an hour long Micro-SD video of a family holiday to Jersey to DVD and posting them back to me the next day in time for me to surprise my wife with them when we returned to Jersey for our silver wedding anniversary. His professionalism and speedy turnaround throughout was much appreciated by both me and my wife. Heartily recommended! Chris Hawkins   |     |  

Would definitely recommend him to friends & family....

Very pleased with what Steve did for us had old projector films converted on to DVD’s all of which came out good quality so would definitely recommend him to friends & family. Richard Warburton   |     |  

Steve took great care to understand what I was requiring...

I had a considerable quantity of 8mm and 16mm film which I wanted to have copied onto DVDs to make them easier to view. Steve took great care to understand what I was requiring and could advise me of the options with the 16mm films - his suggestion that with this film stock it would benefit from having the copies in HD format was well worth implementing. Although section headings are given as chapter numbers rather than year and/ or place, this is not a significant shortcoming to me - particularly since many of the films had had place and year inserted. I have started to watch these older films - which started in 1928 - and it is a pleasure to remember that the last time I saw these was when my grandfather ran some of them when we visited between 50 to 60 years ago. Steve's estimate of time required for duplication was accurate and he generously included extra copies of the DVDs, for distribution in the family, at no extra charge. Being silent films they benefitted from the addition of music - this isn't intrusive and adds to the charm of the film contents. Philip W   |     |
