Here are some answers to some of the myths you may have heard:

  • It's Fast!!!! FALSE!!!!! Correction: There is no fast technology to speed up the process. When you convert a 2 hour VHS to DVD it takes about 2 hours and 15 minutes to set-up, record and finalize.
  • The video quality will get enhanced in the copy process. Correction: FALSE!!! The DVD is a copy of the video tape and will look like the tape it was copied from.
  • Cutting Out The Parts I Don't Want Is Easy! Correction: FALSE!!! It is less expensive to record the videotape from beginning to end because once the video tape and DVD recorder is set-up the process does not require a video technician's time and attention until the recording is finished. Starting and stopping the DVD recorder and video tape to cut out the parts you don't want requires dedicated time throughout the real-time recording process.
  • It's Easy To "SAVE" My Old Neglected Video Tapes. Correction: FALSE !!! Most of the time old video tapes can be played but some tapes that have been stored in damp basements, garages, attics and warehouses have deteriorated to the point they can't be played.
  • Since I purchased the vhs tape or other media I can make as many copies as I want. Correction: FALSE!!! It does not give us the legal ability to make additional copies, even if the copy is another format such as DVD or CD. Almost all movies and music is copyright protected. TV programs are also copyright protected and making even one copy is prohibited by copyright law.You need written permission from the author and or publisher and special software and or hardware for additional charges
