How much does it cost?


First, we'd like to hear what you've got and what you'd like us to do with it, so why not call us on:

       01582 696911

If you know what you've got:


If you have a fairly precise understanding of what you want to convert from and what you what you want us to convert it to, when you call us, we'll ask you about quantities.


We'll ask about how many megabytes of data (when it's audio or video, we'll also ask you about how many minutes or hours of recording) and how many disks or tapes you've got.

It doesn't matter if you're not sure about exact quantities, because even if you only have a rough idea of how much you've got, this will usually give us enough information to be able to give you costs immediately over the phone.


Not sure what you've got?


If you're not sure what you've got, because it's a piece of old or unfamiliar media or data, don't worry.


When you call us, we'll ask you some brief questions about what you've got (mainly about what it looks like and anything it says on the media or label and anything you know about what and where it came from).


From your answers we'll be able to tell what you need us to do, so that we can give you costs over the phone and we can confirm them by email.


If it isn't possible to establish exactly what it is (or how much data is involved) from your answers, we may ask you to send it to us, in order for us to inspect it ourselves and to be able to work out costs.

You don't need to prepare for the call but if you want to, check out the lists on this website to see if they include the item you want to convert.


If you can't find what you're looking for on the lists, don't worry, we always have lots more things that we have yet to put up on the website, so please give us a call anyway.


Whatever you do, please phone in, and we'll be delighted to make sure you have everything you need to know to get the job done as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Why are we so effective at solving these kinds of problems?


Firstly, we set out in 1988 to tackle all the computing and technology jobs that nobody else wanted.


We soon discovered the following:


The more of them you do, the better you get!


Since our beginning we have found that the best way to solve the widest range of difficult technology problems was to build up the word's most sophisticated database of thousands of (often obscure) problems and solutions.


This has proved to be the best way to develop a detailed understanding of how to ask the right questions, in order to identify the right solution to a seemingly insoluble technical problem.


We have developed long-standing relationships with enormous numbers of individuals who are each experts (often retired) in solving one particular kind of technological problem.


When you call us with a problem, our long memories, detailed records and expert systems help us to ask you the right questions in order to 'get a handle on your problem'.


People tell us that we seem to know 'more than is humanly possible' about the most obscure problems, but we don't hide the fact that our knowledge is constantly augmented by our network of enthusiastic collaborators.

In fact, once we have solved your problem with some unusual or old technology, we might actually have the audacity to ask you to help us if someone else comes up with a similar problem in future (which perhaps gives an insight into how we appear to be so knowledgeable!) and offer to pay for your help!


We work on the principle that:


'the more problems we solve, the more problems we CAN solve'
