As in most media, we are initially told that it will last forever, record albums, video tape, floppy discs, laser discs, and so forth. The video tape of the 80’s are fading, snapping, and loosing there color. This is especially prevalent when video tapes have been stored in very hot, very damp, or very cold locations. We can digitize your tapes to a DVD or even a Hard Drive. If they are on a DVD, then you can easily watch them on your player. You can also put the disc in a computer software program to edit and make changes. Records seem to have held up the best as long as they didn’t get scratched. The same applies to your discs. If they are starting to look aged then have them copied to a fresh disc.
