Frequently Asked Questions


Q.   How can I know my DVD player will play your DVDs?

A.   Our typical DVD is a DVD-R.  Practically all 2002 and later model year players will play DVD-R's, but not all.   2000 and earlier DVD players may or may not play DVD-R's.  You may ask for a test DVD to see if your player is compatible.  We also can make DVD+R discs and DVD+R DL, and DVD-R DL discs depending on your requests and project requirements.  Ask us what we recommend for your project.

 

Q.  Why doesn't videotape last?

A.  Because videotape is composed of oxide particles that record the image.   These are bound to the base of the tape.  The binder material that holds these components together deteriorates over time and becomes sticky.  The oxide particles can separate from the base making replay poor if not impossible.  In addition to chemical breakdown the tape can become damaged by a number of causes including mildew, magnetic fields, warping, cracking, and creasing over time.  See "Glossary of Terms" under Links.
