Can iMemories convert recorded TV shows or Hollywood movies from VHS tapes?

No. iMemories is not able to process copyrighted materials such as TV shows or Hollywood movies. However, if a videotape has a blend of home movies and TV or movie footage, the TV or movie footage will be removed, but, the home movie footage will be preserved.

Will you return my originals

Where does iMemories process orders?

All of our orders are processed in our new state-of-the-art facility in Scottsdale, Arizona. Given the high level of importance and value we place on your older analog memories, it was essential for us to locate iMemories in a place where there are no natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes or floods. Our new 50,000 sq. ft. facility located in the heart of the ''Silicon Desert'' provides us access to an abundant and highly trained labor pool. This allows iMemories to provide the world's premier digitization service. Your family memories remain in one location throughout the entire process until we return them to you. This ensures that our service provides an unparalleled level of safety and security.

Is there a limit to how many I can send?

How do I tell how many feet of movie film are on a reel?

Most home movie film reels have markings on the side of the (metal) reel that indicate the length. You will traditionally see 200 feet, 300 feet, or 400 feet for 8mm or Super 8. Traditionally, the smallest reels (plastic), the ones that measure 3 inches in diameter, are 50-foot reels.

The length and run time of 8mm film and Super 8 film are as follows:

    3 inch reel (50 feet) 2-3 minutes
    4 inch reel (100 feet) 5-6 minutes
    5 inch reel (200 feet) 12-14 minutes
    6 inch reel (300 feet) 19-22 minutes
    7 inch reel (400 feet) 26-29 minutes

16mm film running time will be approximately half of 8mm film or Super8 film.
