VHS to digital
Author: ns2557

Over the years I have taken a few movies along with some I have bought from other fans. I have some Pentrax, etc also.  What my question is, what is the best way to transfer the VHS to a digital media, DVD/Thumb Drive etc. Any companies out there that do this rather inexpensively?  I want to get these done before the tapes go south.  Thanks for any ideas?   Ben

I did a "VHS to DVD" search on Google, and a whole page of companies who do that, came up.  That includes Walgreens, which advertises same day service.  You can explore costs on the individual websites using Google's links.

In did all mine myself using a converter.  Only drawback is storage required for huge files.  However, I saved some 25 year old tapes that started to deteriorate.

Last winter I wanted to convert many family VHS tapes to DVD. Bought a Toshiba converter / player from BH Photo for aroind $200. Worked VERY well, no apparent loss in quality. Also now I have another DVD player and a VHS player. Instructions are complicated but in practice it works great.
