“I’ve hired Black Tape Media twice to convert family videos from VHS, VHS-C, and Mini DV. I was going to do it myself, but after doing the math, I realized that it made much more sense to hire Black Tape. They are fast, professional, and well-priced. And the quality of the digital files is excellent.”

A: Yes. We recommend purchasing an external hard drive with sufficient storage capacity to ensure that all your files can be stored.
Q: How do I receive the videos if I do not have a thumb drive?
A: We have the capability to send the videos via Dropbox for you to download online and save on your computer.
