"After searching & talking to many family members my Sister and I finally found Uncle Herb's old wire recorder and tapes. We thought we would play them ourselves on the recorder, but after reading info on the internet about wire recorders and snarls, etc, we started looking for a company to convert them for us. We finally decided on CVC. We felt the wire recordings would be very bad, or no good at all after being in a garage or attic for 45 years. HELLO THEY WERE WONDERFUL. I got tearful hearing my Aunts and Uncles sing and play, also hearing my own wedding that was 47 years ago. I actually heard the Preacher this time around, and my Sisters beautiful voice. The CD's are not perfect, there is a little glitch every now and then, but then Uncle Herb wasn't perfect and the imperfections are so minute, the sound is so clear and good, you won't believe it. I am sending the last 3 wires today to be restored. Thank you for bring back many great memories."

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.
