James H. – “I was very satisfied with Memory Fortress. They were extremely knowledgeable in restoring my photos. I had old still photos and also some on old format tapes and disks. They put everything on DVDs and my memory stick so I can play them in all my electronic devices.

They were fast and got the job done perfectly and at a fair price. I highly recommend them and I will be using their services again!

Thank you Memory Fortress!”

Words of Wisdom Before You Order

Our Hi8 to digital service staff has seen thousands of tapes and old VHS movies come in for digital conversion.

VHS tapes tend to deteriorate the quickest, so make this the priority. 

Footage of weddings, graduations, and childbirths are also generally very high-priority items. 

It’s much more cost-effective to send in one large order than to send it in pieces over a couple of months.

Memory Fortress backs up everything we digitize (including all tapes) for 90 days, so if something should happen to your digital copies after we send them back to you, we have a full backup here. 

There is no charge for blank tapes, and you can mix and match all formats listed on this page.
