Is your problem described below?

  • Have you got a strange-looking tape reel or cartridge that you need to read?
  • Have you got a tape which looks normal but is in a different format, so you can't use it?
  • Has someone asked you to put something onto a type of tape that they can read but you can't?
  • Do you need to read a tape which came from a tape drive that you have long since got rid of?
  • Have you got a tape that you need to put onto CD or DVD or a hard disk or onto the web?
  • Have you got a whole tape library where you want to get the data off onto another media, like disks or different tapes?
  • Have you got a tape that you can't read because it is damaged?
  • Have you got a tape where you can only access part of its contents?
  • Have you got a tape where you need to make multiple copies or put it onto multiple CDs or DVDs?

If you have any of these problems, we can help

Click on the audio tapes, video tapes or computer tapes link to see a list of the relevant types of tape that we can deal with.

Once we have got the contents off your tape, we can put them onto media you can read, such as CD, DVD or onto any other kind of tape, or if you want, we can email them to you, or even put them onto a web server for you.

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 this:

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 and 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 we'll offer to pay for your help!

We work on the principle that:

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