Back to the Past Video

Convert your precious home movies to digital! Tapes degrade over time. We convert home videos to digital and put them on a flash drive, DVD or Blu-ray. Video files will be cut and spliced into separate events and labeled for organization. We travel to Victorville, Apple Valley, Hesperia, Oak Hills, Phelan, Adelanto & Helendale. No shipping required! We work hard to keep our turn around time short, so you can start viewing your memories as soon as possible. Your videos will also be backed up for at least 1 year, just incase you misplace your flash drive or just want more copies made for family. Make your slides, negatives, cassette tapes and vinyl records digital too! Save your memories today!

About Us​

We started converting tapes in early 2022, after hearing about people wanting to convert their taped memories to digital. Not many wanted to ship out their only memories of loved ones via the mail. We decided that we’d start a pick-up and delivery service where people could meet us in person and know that we’d take great care of their taped memories.
We currently work with VHS tapes, VHS-C tapes, Hi8/High8 tapes, MiniDV tapes, MiniDVD discs, cassette tapes, vinyl records, color and black & white negatives (135, 110, 126) and 50mm slides.
(Coming soon, 8mm reel-to-reel) 

Home Movies​

No matter how small or large your collection of memories are, we can convert them to digital.

VHS Tapes can have up to 6 hours of footage or maybe just 3 minutes, that’s why we charge by the hour. We will always view the whole tape, beginning to end, to make sure every memory is recored. If you accidentally recorded over your memories with TV shows, we won’t charge you for the time.
Hi8/Video8 tapes can be up to 90 minutes.
VHS-C tapes can be up to 60 minutes.
MiniDV tapes can be up to 90 minutes.
