Today JVC announced that they stop making VCR's, No reason to panic though as many companies still make VHS-DVD combinations, but the day that they stop making em is comming closer. I have cupboards filled with VHS, but I don't own a VCR anymore at the moment. How about you ? Do you have tons of cassettes lying around still but no VCR ? What are you gonna do with for example your kid's first steps tape, or your marriage tape. Let's hear what your view on this is, Spill your guts.

I also have a bunch of vhs movies that i got a really long time ago. I have a VCR that i dont use lol. When i get a movie i watch it once and then dont watch for a couple of months. Those couple of months help me forget what goes on in the movie so that when i watch it again its like im watching it for the first time.

I do have a lot of cassettes lying around but I am not really bothered as I still have my VCR. I just don't use it. Also,about your cassettes of your Babys first stepps. I would suggest that you visit some PC store or contact some friend who is good with computers. They can simply record them on a computer and turn them into a DVD or a simple video file. Just don't forget that it won't make the video quality better because it is on a DVD. (I am jsut saying this because some people might believe this) I am myself still young so I don't have any important cassetts. Well,except for the one of me finishing School. Now that I think about it, I should try to find that cassett and make a copy of it for my computer. Thanks for reminding me of that! :)
