If you can’t supply your own USB or hard drive

Some tapes need mould cleaned from them before we can transfer them.
We charge $15 per tape for mould cleaning.
We can repair some tapes in-house.

After transferring an audio cassette, DAT, record or CD we can cut up
the individual songs and export them as separate files, each labelled with the song title.

Drop your tapes off.
Drop your tapes off at the time you’ve booked. We’ll transfer everything and contact you when they’re ready for pick up.
Please fill out the below form before your drop your tapes off.
We are often on the lookout for new VCR players, MiniDV and Hi8 camcorders, VHS and camcorder tape cleaners, VHSc adaptors, and other media transfer equipment.
If you have any of these items that you’re looking to sell or giveaway please let us know.
To transfer your tape we need to play it through in real time – so if it’s a 4 hour tape it will take 4 hours to transfer. Once we’ve transferred the tape we then need to export the file to your USB/hard drive, depending on the size of the file this can take a little while. Generally we’d allow for a few days to complete an order of multiple tape transfers.
If you need your tape transferred quickly please let us know ahead of time so we can accommodate tight deadlines.
Great questions – we recommend approx 4GB of space per tape. It’s important to keep in mind that the actual storage space on a USB or hard drive is usually around 80%, as a rule of thumb, of what was advertised. That means if you have an 8GB USB you may only be able to fit 7GB of data on there.
We charge a $25 set up fee and $12 per tape. We can supply a USB or hard drive for an extra charge.
Unfortunately we don’t offer a discount for large orders.
All tape drop off and pick up’s are by appointment only. To book an appointment please get in touch – you can call, text or email us.
Next, we’ll ask you to fill out a client form – scroll down to the bottom of this page to fill out our quick and easy online form before you drop the tapes off.
Once your tapes are dropped off we’ll start the transfer. We’ll email you an invoice when the transfer is complete and your order is ready for collection.
You can pay via bank transfer, online card payment (there is a 1.75% processing fee for card payments) or PayID when you pick your tapes up.
Payment must be made before or when the tapes are collected.
We’ll make every effort to transfer all of your tapes – sometimes tapes are old and unfortunately they can’t be transferred. We only charge for tapes that are successfully transferred.
Unfortunately, we can’t transfer tapes with mould on them. Mould needs to be cleaned off all tapes before we can transfer them. We can remove mould from tapes. We charge $15 per tape for mould cleaning.
We transfer DVD’s, CD’s, Mini DVDs, VHS, Super VHS, Video8/HI8, VHSc, Mini-DV tapes, slides, SD cards, records, Digital Audio Tapes (DAT) and audio cassette tapes.
We don’t transfer film reels – if you have 8mm or 16mm film reels we recommend contacting Xander Productions.
Dave and Fyona were extremely helpful friendly and professional. They did an amazing job bringing all our VHS tapes (memories) into the 21st century for us to forever enjoy.
Fyona and Dave at Pipe Wolf Media transferred several VHSC tapes to mp4 files for me. I had a really good experience with them. Happy all around.
I have been wanting to transfer my precious family videos from VHS to digital form for a long time. I was relieved to find a local company who provided this service. I found Fyona and Dave of PipeWolf Media to be friendly and reliable. Corresponding with them was easy and my queries were answered quickly.
My family is very happy with the end product, as Fyona and Dave made efforts to provide us with the best quality recording.
Now our family movies are stored on USB devices which are easily copied, so we all have easy access to those memories whenever we want.
Based on my own experience, I would certainly recommend PipeWolf Media.
Sent in 20 tapes to be converted to digital files and Pipewolf were able to successfully do all but 3. They didn’t charge for what they couldn’t convert and gave me advice on what to do with the tapes that didn’t work. Turn around time was really quick too.
First time customer for digitising of older DVD’s. Both Fyona and Dave were a pleasure to deal with.
