Video tapes weren't built to last forever, and they don't.  In fact, VHS tapes start naturally degrading after just 5 years.  Moisture, heat, dust, magnetic fields and other factors accelerate the degradation of tapes, and eventually the footage on them will be severely damaged or lost forever.  Transferring your home videos to DVD is the best way to archive them and ensure they'll be around for years to come.  Once video tapes are transferred to DVD, there is no longer any risk of natural decay to the footage.  The longer you wait, the worse your tapes will get, so transfer your video tapes to DVD today!
