Recommended Posts

I want to transfer three VHS-C tapes onto a USB stick. Does anyone in Sheff provide this service? Any idea on prices?

Cheers

Jessops at Meadowhall would be worth trying

I did this myself recently. Using 3 components...

 

1. VHS-c to VHS adapter. around £20.

2. VHS player. borrowed from friend.

3. Video capture device. around £60 on eBay (used).

 

I resold 1 and 3 after converting my videos. So minimal costs. Process of converting a bit time consuming, but didn’t want to trust tapes to strangers.

 

No idea on costs of using a service,

USB capture devices are dirt cheap now.  I paid £20 for a Tevion one from Aldi years ago which was fine.

I used an Elgato Game Capture HD. Also tried a cheap Chinese video capture device (very similar to one you linked), I got  VERY poor results (which prompted me to splurge on the Elgato).

I have a vhs player hooked up to a DVD recorder, and with another step could make a video file on a stick. If you can supply the vhs c adapter I can do this at about £10 per tape.

I can recommend Rob above. I gave him the tapes on Saturday afternoon and they were completed by Sunday afternoon. Great job, thanks Rob
