    Quoted from John1210:

    They are meant to degrade and go to shit after around 7 years.

    I have 30 year old VHS tapes that still play good.

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Yes...I transfered a bunch of my VHS tapes to DVD or Blu-Ray. There are many TV Specials I recorded that never made it to DVD. There are a bunch of VHS and laser Discs that sell for crazy money because the supplemental material (interviews, etc) never transferred to the DVD or Blu-Ray. Some of the Bond films for example...

    How did you make the transfers compatible for all NTSC players?

    I can't find a good player to guarantee this.

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Don't know. My friend told me the machine to buy, I bought it and he hooked it up and made the transfers. I didn't test them on a bunch of machines. They worked on all of mine though....

    Okayyyyyyyy, so what is the name brand and model of the machine?

    I would like to do some homework on it, thanks!

    Quoted from Jumping-Box:

    Mike, using a TBC is the best way to capture VHS footage onto a DVD or a computer. A TBC (Time Base Corrector) will stabilize all NTSC signals. It will also remove the copy protection from VHS tapes. Because of HDTV, TBCs are dirt cheap now. Or just send me your tapes, I own a Video Editing Service - http://www.jumping-box.com/

    Thanks for your help! PM sent!
