background

Transfer VHS tapes
to USBs and other modern formats.

Gathering round to watch home videos at a family get-together, enjoying (or “enjoying”) clips from friends’ holidays, reminiscing about weddings and parties…

Safe to say, video tapes hold some of life’s best memories.

But, as technology has moved on, fewer people than ever have VHS players and old tapes are gradually breaking and deteriorating.

Converting VHS tapes to USBs is the perfect way to preserve and relive those precious memories.

Video tapes are the media we convert most often, digitising hundreds of thousands of hours since we started Digital Converters. We’ve got the best equipment, highly-trained technicians, and a shameless love for nostalgia.

Your tapes couldn’t be in safer hands!

Examples of our video tape conversions.

Nothing beats seeing old memories remade for today

FAQs

Q. How do I convert VHS tapes to USB?
To convert VHS tapes to USB or memory sticks, you'll need a VHS player or playback device, a video capture device, appropriate cables, and a computer. Connect the VHS player to the video capture device, which is then connected to your computer's USB port. Use video capture software to record the VHS footage on your computer, edit the video if necessary, and export it in a suitable digital format. Finally, transfer the digitised video file to the USB or memory stick.

This is not a simple process however, and you may be disappointed with the resulting quality. This is not to mention the cost of acquiring the equipment and software. A far more cost effective and easier option is to utilise a professional company such as Digital Converters to transfer your VHS video tapes to USB stick.
Q. Can I convert VHS tapes to USB without a computer?
While it's possible to convert VHS to USB using standalone devices, using a computer with proper software provides greater flexibility and control over the capture and editing process and is generally much cheaper.

The easiest and most cost effective way to convert VHS tapes to memory stick is to use a trusted professional service such as Digital Converters to transfer your old videos to USBs.
Q. What equipment do I need to convert VHS tapes to USB or memory sticks?
You'll need a VHS / VCR player or playback device, a video capture device that connects to your computer's USB port, appropriate cables for connections, a computer with video capture and editing software, and a USB or memory stick for storage.
Q. Is there a professional service to convert VHS to USB or memory sticks?

Q. What software can I use to convert VHS tapes to digital format for USB?
Software options like OBS Studio, Adobe Premiere, and Final Cut Pro can be used for capturing and editing footage during the VHS to USB conversion process. However, the quality which can be achieved by a DIY-er can leave a lot to be desired.
Q. How long does it take to convert VHS tapes to USB or memory sticks?
If you’re attempting a DIY VHS to USB conversion, the time required varies based on the length of the VHS tapes, the speed of your capture equipment, any necessary editing, and the chosen digital format, which in this case is USB which is one of the faster methods.

Q. How can I improve the quality of VHS to memory stick conversions?
Ensure your VHS tapes are in good condition and properly cleaned before conversion, and use high-quality video capture devices and appropriate capture settings for optimal results. However, home level conversion equipment and software can only achieve so much, and can be very costly to set up, so using a service such as Digital Converters to convert your VHS tapes to pen drives is an all round better option.
Q. How much does it cost to convert Videotapes to USB or memory sticks?
For DIY conversion costs vary based on factors like the number of tapes, their length, the level of editing required, and then of course there’s the cost of the equipment and software. The total cost would then be well into the hundreds, and potentially close to a thousand pounds, making it only cost effective if you’re planning to convert a large number of videos.

It’s almost always cheaper to use Digital Converters to transfer your videotapes to memory sticks, and we even give a discount for bulk orders.

This gives you an improved copy of your priceless videos that you can watch whenever you like.
Q. Can I convert copyrighted VHS content to USB or memory sticks?
It is illegal to convert copyrighted material unless you own the original source material. Make sure you are using the content only for personal use or that you have the necessary permissions. It is for this reason that we do not convert commercial or copyrighted material.
