We are experts in taking audio, video, cine film and computer data from old and strange technologies - and getting them into the format you really need

Have you got audio tapes or cassettes that you want to put on CD?

Have you got video or camcorder tapes that you want to put on DVD?

Have you got old cine films you want to watch on DVD?

Have you got computer tapes, computer disks or computer data in a weird format that you just can't read?

We work with the UK 's biggest blue-chip companies.


We've served more than 6000 customers since 1988!


Is your problem described below?


  • Have you got some strange or unfamiliar disks, tapes or computer data that you need to read?
  • Have you got some disks, tapes or data that are in the wrong format for the system that you use?
  • Has someone asked you to put something into a format that they can read but you can't?
  • Have you got some disks tapes or data which came from a machine or software package that you have long since got rid of?
  • Have you got something on a disk or tape that you need to put onto CD, or DVD a hard disk or onto the web?
  • Have you got a whole library of data, or audio or video or paper, fiche or film, where you want to get the library content onto higher capacity tapes, or hard disks, or CDs or DVDs or onto a web server?
  • Have you got something on a disk or tape that you can't read because it is damaged or corrupted?
  • Have you got a disk, tape or data where you can only get at part of the contents?
  • Have you got a disk, tape or some computer data which needs 'cleaning up' in order to make it more useful?

If you have any of these problems, we can help


Click on any of the following links to see a list of the relevant types of data conversion that we can deal with:


  • Data (word processing, databases, spreadsheets, graphics, typesetting, scientific data, accounting systems data
  • Disks (floppy disks, disk packs, optical disks, hard disks)


  • Tape (PC and Mac backup systems, mainframe an mini tapes, old reels)


  • Audio (reels, discs, cassettes, cartridges and files)


  • Video (reels, cassettes, cartridges, disks and files)


So that we can deal with converting different computer disks and tapes as well as audio and video, we also deal with the different computers, operating systems, backup software and file formats.


Once we have retrieved the contents from the disk, tape, or email you have sent us, we can do one of two things:


  • we can put the content that you send us straight onto the type of tape or disk you that want 'as is' without changing its format (if all you want us to do is change the media for you)
  • additionally we can also convert the content you send us to any other format, before we put it onto the type of tape or disk that you want

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'
