Turn VHS-C tapes
into USBs and other modern formats.

Whether it's footage of family gatherings, weddings, or even the birth of your children, ageing home video cassettes like the compact VHS-C definitely contain some of our most treasured memories.

However, as technology advances, fewer people own VHS-C players, and these outdated cassettes continue to degrade and break.

To prevent these memories from going forever, we can convert your VHS-C cassettes to USB.

Since we created Digital Converters, we have converted hundreds of thousands of hours of cassettes on antiquated formats such as VHS-C to USB thumb drives. We have the greatest equipment, the most trained professionals, and an undeniable fondness for old things!

There is no one more trustworthy to manage your recordings and preserve your memories forever.

Q. Can I convert my old VHS-C tapes to USB on my own?
Converting your cherished VHS-C tapes to USB on your own can be done, but it is very technical and can be expensive. To begin, you'll need to gather the necessary components, including a VHS-C to VHS adapter, a VCR (Video Cassette Recorder), a video capture device, and a computer.

The first step involves inserting your VHS-C tape into the VHS-C to VHS adapter, which can then be placed into your VCR. Next, connect your VCR to the video capture device, which, in turn, connects to your computer. Utilising specialised video capture software, initiate the process to record the content of your tape and store it on your computer's hard drive.

However, it's important to bear in mind that the DIY route can prove time-consuming and might yield results of varying quality. These results often hinge upon the condition of your VHS-C tapes, the quality of your equipment, and your proficiency in handling the technical aspects of the conversion. It's worth considering that our professional services at Digital Converters bring to the table not only advanced equipment but also a wealth of expertise, ensuring the highest possible quality for your cherished memories.
Q. What is the advantage of using a professional service like Digital Converters over DIY methods?
Opting for our professional VHS-C converter service presents numerous advantages that sets us apart from DIY methods. These advantages extend to both the quality of the conversion and the overall experience. At Digital Converters, we are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by experienced technicians who possess an intricate understanding of video conversion processes. This expertise translates into superior results - our converted videos have exceptional clarity and fidelity. Professional services save you valuable time and effort, sparing you from the complexities and potential frustrations associated with DIY approaches. While DIY methods can yield satisfactory results, our professional services consistently deliver the highest quality conversions, making them the optimal choice for individuals who seek the utmost in preserving their cherished memories.
Q. How long does it take to convert VHS-C tapes to USB?
The time required to convert VHS-C tapes to USB can vary widely and hinges on several variables. The foremost factor influencing the time frame is the length of the VHS-C tape itself. For instance, converting a two-hour VHS-C tape will naturally take longer than a shorter tape. Furthermore, the speed and efficiency of your equipment play a pivotal role. The quality of your video capture device and computer hardware can either expedite or prolong the process.

Additionally, the format you select for the conversion, along with any editing or enhancement steps you undertake, can influence the time invested. On average, a DIY conversion of a two-hour VHS-C tape may span between two to four hours. In contrast, our professional services at Digital Converters often may take longer (we aim to dispatch your converted media within 7 days of receiving your tapes), but the results will be better, and there is no unnecessary expenditure on costly equipment that you may never use again.
Q. How much does it cost to convert VHS-C tapes to USB with a professional service like Digital Converters?
At Digital Converters, we provide affordable pricing with an emphasis on value for money. We believe in offering a high-quality service that is worth the money, especially considering the precious value of preserving your memories.

A single VHS-C tape can be converted to USB for £14.99 per tape + £8.00 for the USB stick (which can contain many tapes' worth of footage). We also offer up to 30% off for bulk orders.
Q. Can you convert VHS-C tapes to other formats too?
Yes, at Digital Converters, we possess the capability to convert VHS-C tapes to DVD, in addition to digital video files for you to download or stream. Whether your tapes adhere to the NTSC or PAL standards, our expertise and specialised equipment can accommodate the nuances of different formats. We ensure compatibility with USB devices, ensuring that your converted videos can be seamlessly enjoyed across a broad range of playback platforms.
Q. Will my converted VHS-C videos be edited or enhanced by Digital Converters?
Yes, we take pride in offering comprehensive video enhancement services to elevate the quality of your converted VHS-C videos. These enhancement services encompass a spectrum of improvements, including noise reduction, colour correction, and other refinements aimed at restoring your videos to their optimal condition. By entrusting your tapes to us, you can be assured that our expert technicians will meticulously enhance your videos, ensuring that they look their absolute best.
Q. What should I do if my VHS-C tapes are damaged or in poor condition?
If your VHS-C tapes are damaged or in poor condition, there's no need to worry. At Digital Converters, we have the expertise and equipment to handle fragile or damaged tapes. Our skilled technicians are experienced in tape restoration and can usually restore and convert most deteriorated tapes to USB. However, some may simply be too damaged - we will let you know if this is the case with yours before we go any further.
Q. Is there a risk of losing my original VHS-C tapes during the conversion process with Digital Converters?
There is absolutely no need to worry about the safety of your original VHS-C tapes when you choose Digital Converters for the conversion process. We take great care in handling your tapes, and they are always returned to you along with the USB copies. This ensures the safety of your cherished memories, and you can rest assured that your original tapes will be in your possession.
Q. How can I ensure the privacy and security of my VHS-C video content?
At Digital Converters, we prioritise the privacy and security of your video content. We have stringent measures in place to protect your data and ensure that it remains confidential. Our secure facilities and protocols guarantee the safety of your videos throughout the conversion process. You can inquire about our privacy and security policies for more details, and we are committed to safeguarding your content.
Q. Do I need to provide my own USB drive for the converted videos with Digital Converters?
No, we provide a high quality USB pen drive for you as part of the service. We select the best drives to ensure your converted media is as safe as possible and will last as long as possible. We would still advise making a backup of your converted VHS-C videos, just in case you were to lose the USB stick.
Q. Can I request multiple copies of my converted VHS-C videos?
Yes, you can certainly request multiple copies of your converted videos. We understand that you may want to share your cherished memories with family members or create backups for safekeeping - so you simply have to select more than 1 when you click “Click to Add” to get more than 1 copy. Please note, we can usually fit many VHS-C tape’s worth of footage onto 1 single USB, so you do not need to order multiple if you are sending multiple tapes.
Q. Can I track the progress of my VHS-C to USB conversion?
Yes, we understand that you may want to stay informed about the progress of your project so we keep you informed every step of the way. You can also check in with us regarding tracking and status updates by using the contact form or by emailing us at
Q. How do I prepare my VHS-C tapes for conversion?
Preparing your VHS-C tapes for conversion is straightforward. Simply ensure that your tapes are labeled, organised, and in good condition. If you have multiple tapes, it can be helpful to provide a list or notes detailing any specific preferences or instructions for the conversion. Our team will guide you through the process and address any specific concerns you may have.
Q. Can Digital Converters handle large volumes of VHS-C tapes for conversion?
Absolutely, at Digital Converters, we have the capacity to handle large volumes of VHS-C tapes for conversion, and we offer up to 30% off for such bulk orders. Whether you have a few tapes or an extensive collection, we are well-equipped to efficiently convert them while maintaining the highest quality standards.

Q. Can you convert damaged or moldy VHS-C tapes?
Yes, we can usually convert damaged or moldy VHS-C tapes at Digital Converters. Our experienced technicians are skilled in tape restoration and can often recover content from tapes that may appear damaged. However, it's essential to understand that the extent of restoration may vary depending on the condition of the tape. We always strive to salvage your valuable memories to the best of our ability.
Q. Do I need to clean or repair my VHS-C tapes before sending them to Digital Converters?
While it's true that the better condition the tape is in, the easier the conversion process is, we would prefer it if you left the cleaning of the tapes to us, as it is very easy to permanently damage old tape. If you have concerns about tape cleanliness or damage, you can discuss them with our team, and we will provide guidance on the best course of action.
