You might be better off putting the vhs output into your pc, and then cpying it onto dvd or flash drives. Make multiple copies of everything though.

God Luck !

Let me tell you something about VHS tapes that I found out from my own unhappy personal experience.
I used to tape a lot of my favorite shows like WINGS on The Discovery Channel (the aircraft documentary series, not the comedy), MTV, movies, cartoons, and lots of other tings.
Some of the things I taped I only watched once or twice and then put them away.
A few years later, when I went to watch a movie and some other things I had taped, I unhappily discovered that even if you don't watch the tapes in awhile, the tape still deteriorates to a point where it becomes unwatchable.
:(
CDs/DVDs also have a limited storage life. Moisture is their worst enemy.

Hi,

I own a VHS, Audio Cassette conversion business and am wondering if anybody has any ideas where I should go from here, as you can imagine business has slowed down alot over the years.

Please give honest ideas, I am open for unrelated diversification as long as it is not a silly idea.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
