Q:

how about slides?

shirley m.  asked on  Feb 5, 2013

A:

Thanks for the question, Shirley. Image transfers are priced at $0.49 per image. Since the Groupon covers up to $60 worth of our service, that would be equivalent to 122 images. With image transfers, we produce a data DVD with highest quality digital JPEG files (12 megapixels) to view and copy on your computer; the product is delivered without additional themes or audio.

Q:

I have about 9 of the 8mm videos...I am not sure if there is 5 mins of footage or 1 hour of footage on each tape. Do you charge by the amount of footage or the tape length even if is blank? Also what is the cost for a 120 min tape?

greg K.  asked on  Feb 4, 2013

A:

Thank you for the question, Greg. 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. The 2 hour limit is listed in the event that you have a tape longer than two hours. Since the DVDs can hold up to 2 hours, any tape exceeding two hours will require a new DVD to be made and a cost of $19.99 per additional DVD created. A 120 minute tape (2 hour tape) will cost $19.99. If the tape you submit is blank, we will not charge you for that blank tape. I hope this helps!

Q:

HI, forgive me that I do not know the name of the old reels I am asking about..... So, do you convert those OLD blue reels that project the film/photos onto a wall? The pictures on them were taken about 35-38 years ago (do you know which little reels I am talking about)? Anyhow, my folks have several that I would like to get converted? Thanks you. Heidi

heidi b.  asked on  Feb 4, 2013

A:

Thanks for the question, Heidi. It sounds like you are referring to film reels; we are able to transfer 8 mm, super 8, and 16 mm film! You can see pictures of what these look like on our website, which should help you identify the type of media you have. Our pricing for film transfers is $0.18 per foot, which would be equivalent to six reels 3" reels ($54.00) or 333 feet.

Q:

Do you also transfer from cassette tapes to c.d.'s?

Barbara E.  asked on  Feb 4, 2013

A:

Hi Barbara, thank you so much for your interest in our service. Unfortunately, we are not able to transfer audio-only formats such as cassettes. However, 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:

Can I "select" from a negative strip the photos that I want transferred to a CD? I have a LOT of photos from a trip and don't want ALL of them transferred.

Christine O.  asked on  Feb 4, 2013

A:

Great question, Christine! You can definitely select the images you would like to have transferred! In order to do this, we would need either identification for the images you wish to have processed or the ones you do not. Please to indicate this on the special instructions area of your documents, and would be happy to accommodate your request!

Q:

Better deal at Costco.

Marshall S.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

Hi Marshall. Although we understand this deal is not for everyone, our YesVideo Direct Groupon offer is for $20 for $60 worth of transfer services; this means that by purchasing this deal, you are automatically receiving $40 worth of free transfer services. Just as an example, the $40 dollars would be equivalent to getting four 3” reels transferred for free! However, Costco offers great pricing and both options are available to you in order to make your transfer process easy for you; it is up to you to decide what's the most beneficial for you considering the media you have. Please note that while we do partner with various retailers such as Costco, this Groupon offer is not redeemable at any retail location and is applicable for our YesVideo Direct service only. For more information on our Groupon deal, please visit our website at www.yesvideo.com/Groupon

Q:

Do you convert 8mm tapes? And is there any editing done? I have 8mm tapes of my children crawling, eating, etc.... all the landmarks in their lives on 8mm... I would like to convert to DVD or a CD even (do you do that?) but don't need all the stuff I shot ...you know when your kids are babies you shoot way too much! Is there an online format to edit as they convert. Thank you .

julie h.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

Hi Julie, thanks for the question. At this time, we do not provide a service to edit the footage before it is transferred to a DVD. I would like to take this time to let you know that your video tape order will include access to our MemoryShare website which will allow you to view, share, and edit 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, you may also edit the footage using your own editing software on your computer by utilizing the files on the YesDVDs. If you would like to learn more about our Groupon deal and transfer service, you can also visit our website here.

Q:

What if you have a bunch of short VHS and tapes you want combined. Some are 3 minutes some are 20 minutes. IS there a limit of how many you can send in to create your 2 hours vidoe's? Thanks- Debi

debi m.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

Hi Debi, 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. The 2 hour limit is listed in the event that you have a tape longer than two hours. Since the DVDs can hold up to 2 hours, any tape exceeding two hours will require a new DVD to be made and a cost of $19.99 per additional DVD created. Because the Groupon deal is for $60 worth of our service, that would be equivalent to 3 two-hour tapes, at $19.99 each, for a total cost of $57.97 (that's 3 two-hour tapes for the price of 1!). I hope this helps! To learn more about our Groupon deal and transfer service, you can also visit our website here.
