Q:

I have about 25 undeveloped 35mil color films (in those little black plastic containers with the grey top) that I've had for over 7years in a drawer. Can you develop them? What would be the cost? If not, is there another way that I can have them developed? There may be pictures on them that would love to have, if this still possible. Thanks.

Carol E.  asked on  Feb 8, 2013

A:

Thanks for the question, Carol. Although we would love to be part of the process of preserving your memories, we are unable to develop film; any undeveloped film will need to be returned unprocessed. We do not have a list of places which can develop film but would recommend checking with a trustworthy camera, retail, or department store with a photo department to see if they are able to develop your film. It is also good ot know that we have many accepted formats you may be interested in, including various types of video tapes, film reels, images (slides, negatives, prints), and digital media (USB sticks, memory cards). You can submit any of those to have transferred on to a DVD! To read more about our Groupon offer, you can also visit our website here!

Q:

How exactly do you do a transfer of old (1930s) movies to digital?

David L.  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

Thanks for the question, David! Once we receive your movie film reels we clean, inspect and barcode each and every reel. Our skilled technicians then splice your film onto 7-inch diameter reels. During this process, they remove blank footage and leader film to ensure smooth playback sequence of your footage. Your movie film is then loaded onto a projector and the image is projected and captured directly to a digital camera. The video signal is then encoded to MPEG-2 format. Our technicians enhance the footage to improve color and lighting and the video is digitally recorded onto a DVD and online*. One DVD disc holds up to a 1600' of 8mm film or 3200' of 16mm film.

Q:

Hi, I have about 75 .avi mini movie clips of my kids uploaded on to my computer from my camera. I am not a computer person and cant figure out how to get them on to a dvd that we can play in our player. Would I be able to send these to you or upload through your website? I cant save them onto a disc at all- that is broken. thanks

Melissa P.  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

Hi Melissa, thank you so much for your interest in our service. We would love to be a part of preserving your memories, but currently do not offer a service to upload or send your files to us digitally. Are you be able to place the files on a different device, such as a USB drive or memory card? We would be able to transfer your files, but they must first be placed on a digital media device in order for us to be able to do so.

Q:

I have about 40 carousel boxes of slides from 1965 on. The deal does not state how much is charged per carousel or per slide to convert - can you elaborate on the cost before or after the Groupon discount?

Andrew L.  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

For a price quote, please click here and enter the number of slides in the "estimated quantity" column. An estimated price quote will then appear in the "estimated price" column. Thanks!

Brette V.  from  Groupon  replied on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

Great question, Andrew. We do not accept carousel boxes, so the slides must be taken out of the carousels and shipped separately. We recommend submitting your slides in bundles of 25-50 each and then place a rubber band around them to secure them. For additional protection, you can also wrap the bundles in paper and then place the rubber-band on the bundle. If you wish to have your slides transferred in sequence, please number each slide or bundle (and indicate which side of the bundle to start from).

The deal is for you to spend the $60 any way you wish for our supported media types. Since our pricing for slides is $0.49 per image, your Groupon will cover 122 images (not including applicable tax and shipping).

Q:

is this offer 3 different tapes for 2hours each

Sandra B.  asked on  Feb 5, 2013

A:

Hi Sandra, thanks for the question. The deal is for you to spend the $60 any way you wish for our supported media types. This means the $60's worth is dependent on the quantity and type of media you would like to transfer. If you go by individual media types, the Groupon will cover three two-hour tapes ($57.97 ), six reels 3" reels ($54.00), or 122 images ($59.78). Since you pay a la carte for your order, you can have combinations of the supported media types as well (different media types will go on different DVDs, but they can be placed in the same order). To calculate what you can get out of the Groupon with the media that you have, you can visit our page here and tell us what you have; it will automatically give you a quote depending on the quantity you enter! You can also view our pricing list on that page.

Q:

I have several video's that have dates on them when they are played but I have nothing to play them on so my question is will somebody veiw them all and put them in order and edit out the parts where the canera was on record but just swinging on the floor.

Louise A.  asked on  Feb 5, 2013

A:

Hi Louise, thanks for the question! Our pricing is $19.99 per video tape, up to two hours. We do not merge tapes together, so each tape submitted will be transferred on to its own DVD and have a base price of $19.99; this means that you would not need to identify the sequence in which you would like to have your tapes to be transferred.

Video tape transfers are straight transfers and no custom edits are made; this meas that all the footage on your video tape will be transferred to your DVD. However, I would like to take this time to let you know that your film transfer order will include access to our MemoryShare website which will allow you to view, share, edit and order additional copies of your videos. While you won't be able to edit the footage prior to receiving a DVD, you can always use our online editing tool to create an additional customized DVD for $8.99 plus shipping. Alternatively, since the files on the DVD are not restricted, you may always utilize the video files on your disc and use editing software on your computer.
