If you have recently dusted off the old VHS tapes from your attic or basement and realized the quality is starting to wane - it is for good reason. Not many people realize that this technology has a limited lifespan of 15-20 years. Lets not forget how hard humidity is on all our favorite electronics. The only way to save your home movies from disintegrating into time is to convert them to either DVDs or creating digital files of them that will last forever.   This Media Saver Music and Video Life Extender is here for just that! Simply plug the device into any camcorder, record player, television, or just about anything and use the included software to turn it into a digital file to keep forever and ever.

Great product and cheap!

Great product and cheap!
- Cheyenne, WY -
I use it to transfer old videos so that I can quit storing them. The interface is easy to use.
Works, but with some manipulation and pampering of the setup.
- Russellville, AR -
This works as long as you baby it along. Once it starts recording, it is good to the end.. Getting it started is the trick as everything has to be just right. Also you do not want to do ANYTHING while it is copying. Leave it alone.
This item does not work.
- Buckhannon, WV -
The video grabber looks nice and was a great price but it does not work. The software that came with it does not work. I would not purchase this item again. I'm very disappointed.
Video is a fail.
- Kansas City, MO -
I bought this device for a winter project to save some old movies it does not work. Period. I plan to try saving some music on records, but my expectations are low.
