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 sticks so I can play them on 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

We’ve seen thousands of tapes and old home movies come in for digital conversion.   VHS tapes tend to deteriorate the quickest, so make this the first 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, rather 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.  Lastly, if you have further questions, just click the “Start Here” at the bottom of this page (or on every product page) for more detailed answers.
