Haven't gotten around to digitizing your old home movies yet? You might want to get a jump on it before it's too late! VHS tapes only have a life expectancy of 20-30 years so all your old footage of weddings, parties, holidays, and home videos might deteriorating shortly! This problem is known as the Magnetic Media Crisis, in which the magnetic layer responsible for recording and storing sound and images is losing its magnetic properties.
Since video cameras became mainstream in the '80s and '90s, that means time is running out! Thankfully, there's a way to save those memories you carefully captured by transferring them to digital format. You can do it yourself by buying a analog-to-digital video adapter and download software on your computer OR you can simply take your tapes into a Walgreens, CVS, and Walmart where they offer digital transfer services.
Make sure to digitize your home videos before they're gone forever!
