I bought my first VCR in 1985 and have since collected a few thousand movies in various formats. Also spent several years doing photography and light weight videography.
The quality of the video tapes has deteriorated badly but they still play. I find that my recorded DVDs frequently do not work after about five years.
I would like to transfer my collection to massive (3TB) external hard drives. Perhaps that will preserve them?
Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
