Reserve Scanners/Digitizing Equipment

Be sure to bring a USB Storage Device to transport your scanned images home with you! For movies, a USB hard drive is best, or at least a USB version 3.0 as the transfer rate is much faster than the older USB 2.0 drives.

NOTE: DVD's are becoming "old technology". If you are going to record to a DVD-R disk, be sure to bring one with you. We would encourage you to also digitize your VHS tape to a mp4 movie file as well. DVDs can be easily scratched, or will become unusable over time due to the fading of the dye pigments in them. If you have a different tape format than VHS, ask us about converting those tapes. Be sure to bring a USB flash drive or even better a USB hard drive with you!
