"Dear Dr. Coban: Just got back to Rhode Island. Thanks to you and your staff the long 23 hour drive seemed shorter because I was able to spend some of those hours listening to "The Hi-Fi Nightingale." You did a terrific job restoring the voice and orchestration of this badly worn and abused 45 year old monophonic LP. I can now look forward to years of listening to Caterina. Converting this album was your test. You passed with high marks. I will enthusiastically recommend your service. I have more LPs that I would like to covert to CDs"

I don't know the length of my video tape

Most people do not know the length of their tapes. This is not a problem. Make your selection based on a reasonable guess. When we get your tape at our studio we will determine the exact length and charge the correct amount based on our current prices. Even if you picked the wrong length, the DVD will be made for the correct length and will be priced correctly. We will transfer (and charge) for the amount of time that the video tape is RECORDED. We do not transfer (and charge) for what is left unrecorded on the video tape (blank tape, static and hiss). If the video tape is longer than you selected, we will transfer (and charge) for the entire recorded tape.

Based on your reasonable estimate, please click one of the lengths above.
