Q:

I have some VHS tapes that were purchased and can not be found on DVD. Are you able to transfer purchased or protected video to DVD if we own the VHS tape or are you only able to transfer personal video? Thank you!

Liberty K.  asked on  Apr 12, 2013

A:

According to their website, "Legally, we’ll create one back-up copy of your home videotapes that are under copyright. We just ask you to sign our copyright waiver and include it with your order."

Q:

I have VHS C tape that is mangled in one section and I have been afraid to take it out of the adaptor it is in (so it can be used in the VHS player)! Can you convert this tape even if I will lose some small piece of it? Should I take it out of the adaptor even if it might cause the tape to break? Can you deal with a broken tape,too?

Bonita C.  asked on  Apr 14, 2013

A:

Hi Bonita! I would suggest trying to take it out of the adapter. If it breaks, we can repair the tape for you. Tape repairs are $24.95 and you will lose less than a second of video, sometimes even less. Thanks!

Q:

I have super 8 mm sound film, that I would like to know if your service can accommodate this transfer to dvd?

Gregory S.  asked on  Apr 12, 2013

A:

Hi Gregory, Yes we can, we just ask you to allow an additional 3-4 weeks to process as this is a very hands-on service to digitize and sync the audio with your film. We use the same process and technology as the Academy of Motion Pictures, so they look good if you're patient. To view more info visit www.southtree.com/film. Thanks!

Q:

Hello! I have several VHS tapes I would like converted to DVD or DataDVD. I have only been able to view what is on two of them but I noticed there are 'black' spaces between footage, or 'fuzz' as well. While converting, will these instances be taken out for a clear run of the DVD? Thanks, I look frward to your reply. Ginger

Ginger W.  asked on  Apr 11, 2013

A:

Hi Ginger, We do not provide any custom editing to remove any of these trouble spots. This can get messy. That said, we provide chapters every 5 minutes on the DVD so you can easily scan ahead and back on your disc. Thanks!

Q:

What kind of software do you need to edit the DataDVD on your computer?

Susan B.  asked on  Apr 10, 2013

A:

Hi Susan! We recommend Pinnacle Studio or iMovie on a Mac for editing. Thanks!

Can more than one groupon certificate be used on an order?

Jackie H.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

Hey Jackie! Although we allow you to purchase up to 3 Groupons per household, each Groupon must be used on separate orders as they cannot be combined with other offers. Thank you!

Q:

i have about 30 reels of 8 mm films- 28are little and 2 are larger. about how much would it be to have these made into dvd's. Do you do any restoring? i also have one that is double exposed that i don't know if anything can be done with it?

stacie r.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

Hey Stacie! We charge by the size of your reel, and you can view our pricing at southtree.com/order. Our film conversions process takes away the flickering that you get with the old film reels, and it is the highest quality equipment in the business. We use the same equipment for film conversions as the Academy of Motion Pictures. The films come out looking really great. As far as the one that is double exposed, that will most likely show through in the conversion as well. Thanks!
