Do you remember that thing called a VCR, which played those artifacts known as videotapes? Odds are your VCR hasn’t seen any action in a long time, and you likely have a collection of VHS tapes collecting dust of weddings, graduations, holidays, birthdays and other memories.
Your memories can be displayed in many different forms. These include slides, negatives, film, and video. Most of the time these are not easily accessible when you’re looking to take a trip down memory lane. It’s hard to imagine a world without an iPhone or digital camera yet these analog formats are what were used before anyone had access to these new technologies. Before you think about converting video tapes to DVD, you should probably learn a little more about what you have in your archives.
