VHS to DVD Transfer Staion

Toshiba DVR620

INSIDE THE TINKERSTUDIO

VHS videotapes degrade over time and there’s little to stop it.  It's easy to copy your VHS tapes to DVD using our Toshiba DVR620 DVD Recorder.  Our self-service Transfer Station will easily make digital copies of your personal VHS recordings. 

Bring your own blank, recordable DVD disc (-R) and your VHS tape, follow the steps posted in our TinkerStudio, and create a digital copy ready for playback in any standard DVD player.

Blank DVDs can also be purchased at the Library for $1. The Transfer Station is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Great memories are meant to be shared, so stop in today!

The machine copies in real time plus additional time for digitizing or burning to DVD; allow at least a couple of hours to convert one tape. This equipment is offered thanks to a 2015 grant from the Institute of Museum & Library Service (IMLS).

NOTE: You must own the copyrights on your recordings in order to transfer them in accordance with Title 17 of the US Code and the DMCA. Please do not bring commercial purchases or releases recordings.
