Frequently Asked Questions – CD / DVD / Blu-ray Duplication
Could I request a sample scan?
Yes, that is possible. You can request your free sample scan here.
Can I still edit the digitized film (or have it edited) afterwards?
Yes, you can edit the film yourself. More info: Editing video files – with free software.
We can also do the editing for you. In consultation we can change the order of films, cut out pieces, add music, etcetera.
When copying large files I get an error message
The problem when a large video file cannot be copied is usually that the file system of the hard disk or USB stick is still in FAT32 format. Files larger than 4GB cannot be stored on a FAT32 volume. Formatting the flash drive in the exFAT or NTFS file system will solve this problem.
You can find more information about this:
Can I still buy double8 / super8 / 16mm films?
Yes, you can! Kodak has even reintroduced new Kodak Reversal color film in 2018. In the Netherlands you can go to super8.nl.
Can I still have super8 films developed?
Yes, that can still be done. There are still a number of specialized laboratories that do this. We work together with super8.nl. With newly shot films this is still very affordable!
With perennial films this is also possible, it is a bit more expensive (€ 100,= per film of 15 meters). Also, the quality will generally be less good. These videos can often only be developed in black and white. Due to the lengthy lying of the undeveloped film, the images often become very vague.
Does it pay to put my own movies on DVD?
It is possible to digitize your 8mm films yourself. However, the quality achieved is considerably less than if it is done professionally. For more information on how to transfer your own films, see our page about digitizing your own films.
What to do with soured films?
Somebody told me that if I take soured films through a projector and play a non-soured film through the projector afterwards, the non-soured film will also sour. Is that true? Is a soured film contagious? Is there anything you can do about it, like clean the film?
That is definitely a risk. When a film is soured (acetata decay, vinegar syndrome) the substance “acetic acid” is released (smells like vinegar). This substance can affect other films. Cleaning films with vinegar syndrome does not help.
The decay of the film can be slowed down by storing the film in a cold place (preferably in the freezer). Special bags can also be placed in the film cans to slow down the acidification process: Kodak Molecular Sieve.
It is best to copy or digitize this film directly.
For more information, see the film preservation guide.
What kind of cine film do I have?
Can I rent a projector or movie viewer so I can watch which films I want to digitize?
Yes, you can. We rent and sell film viewers and film projectors.
How many minutes of film are on my reels?
This depends on a number of factors, including the number of frames per second (18 or 24), whether it is normal8 or super8, and so on.
Below is the table for the most commonly used format (18 frames per second and super8):
|7 centimeter||3,5 minutes|
|13 centimeter||14 minutes|
|18 centimeter||28 minutes|
|21 centimeter||40 minutes|
|25 centimeter||53 minutes|

What type of 8mm film do I have?
There are two types of 8mm films:
1) super8 / single8
super8 films are usually put on coils with an inner diameter of 12 mm
2) regular8 (also called: normal8, standard8)
regular8 films are usually put on coils with an inner diameter of 8 mm
USB stick is not working on TV
- The USB stick is not recognized: TVs sometimes cannot handle all formats of USB sticks. Sometimes they cannot read NTFS or exFAT. You can find out which format USB sticks your TV can read in its manual.
If that is the case, you can create a USB stick in the correct format and transfer the video files to it.
- The USB stick is recognized, but the (video) files do not play properly. We create the files in a format that plays well on as many TVs as possible. However, some (old) TV’s may not be able to play the files in this format. In the manual of your TV you can find which formats / codecs are supported. These video files need to be transferred to a format that is playable on your TV.
