Do you still have CDs / DVDs ?
Because of disc rot, it is important to transfer them as soon as possible.
If the disc is not (properly) readable, then the cost of transferring will be charged.
All prices are including 21% VAT and subject to change.
The prices include:
- transferring to a data carrier (USB/hard disk/SSD)
- Downloading it via the internet (via a personal link)
The supplied disks are transferred 1:1 to modern media such as a hard disk, SSD, USB stick. We can also make the files available (free of charge) via the Internet.
When transferring CDs or DVDs with video on them, we usually transfer them to .mp4 files. The old MPEG2 files (VIDEO_TS folder) are often no longer playable on modern TVs.
Frequently asked questions – CD / DVD transfer
Disc rot, what is this?
Disc rot (sometimes referred to as disc decay) is the tendency of CDs, DVDs or other optical discs to become unreadable due to physical or chemical deterioration. Causes include oxidation of the reflective layer, physical wear of the disc, reactions with contaminants, damage from ultraviolet light, and loosening of the glue that binds the layers of the disc together.
CD rot / DVD rot causes a CD or DVD to deteriorate step by step, starting immediately after burning the discs. Our advice is not to take any risks and to transfer data and video from CDs and DVDs to other media such as USB sticks, hard disks or in the cloud as soon as possible.
