Notes

  • Although the utmost care is taken, due to the mechanical nature of the media, we can not be held responsible for breakages.
  • Due to the mechanical nature of VHS cassettes, and the lower quality of VHS footage, quality can not be guaranteed on DVD. Our best efforts will be used to restore your footage.
  • Adding content to a disc results in the need for more storage space, and may necessitate the need to increase the compression ratios of video and audio. Doing so decreases the quality of that video and audio.
  • The responsibility on copyright rests on the customer on an music tracks used on the disc.
