    I bought my first VCR in 1979. If the manufacturers
    had of stuck to one format instead of having VHS
    and BETA they might of lasted a little longer.

    And I’m stuck with hundreds of VHS tapes that take up more room than DVDs and can’t copy them to DVD because they’re blocked.

    Yes, you can……. buy a special connecter so that you can play them into your computer via USB, then burn them from there.

    VHS died a natural death due to the demand for higher picture quality when HDTVs became affordable. DVDs and then Blu-Rays quickly became the desired format for video rentals and purchases.

    We will lose all the wedding/birthday/family foto’s when the dvd & everything (new) else goes out the window, all very sad. no more albums to trawl through in our old age.

    Most of my family and kid’s photos are on slides – 12 carousels worth.
    The last known projector bulb burned out in 1978, my neck’s got a permanent crick from holding them up to the kitchen light, and copying them to a computer is extremely tedious.

    And I, honest to God, just put a projector bulb in the trash yesterday. Still in the box.

    @FlyeTom: After my slide projector died, I video taped my slides (with back ground music from another source) from a little electric slide viewer. I used my camcorder to record my slides, aiming it into the viewer – yes, my camcorder died also, replaced by a digital camcorder which is complicated to use. I then copied my camcorder slides to VHS and in turn copied them to DVD with a dual VHS-DVD recorder. I still can’t get myself to throw my slides away even if they are copied.

    What’s neat is vinyl records are not going away. I read somewhere that the number of new records sold last year actually exceeded the number sold the previous year.

    And you can still buy turntables fairly easily.

    I never had any problem.

    That’d be better than watching the Dinosaurs TV show that was on in the 80’s I believe. “Not the Mama!”

    Good heavens! I am surprised there are that many folks who remember what “BVDs” were/are. I haven’t heard that word in decades. But it sure made me laugh.
