Although DVDs last a lifetime without deterioration in quality one scratch or scuff mark will render it unplayable. For this reason we strongly advise you to order an extra DVD back up copy of your Digital8 Video work - the cost is only £5 per tape and well worth it for peace of mind.

We can fix any type of physical damage to the tape such as snapped or entangled tape, tapes which are immediately ejected and replacing the tape housing.
We cannot generally fix problems associated with bad recordings (too light or too dark), camera equipment malfunctions and sound problems.
If you have accidentally erased the tape we cannot restore the footage.
NTSC is a video format standard widely used in many other parts of the world such as USA. Japan and much of South America.
So if your Digital8 tape was originally filmed in any of these countries it will need to be converted to PAL format to play on UK TV systems.
The cost of NTSC Digital8 transfer to PAL and encoded to DVD is £40 per Digital8 video tape.
