Dr Virago Pete's D-2 Tape Transfer Service 


I transfer the following formats of D-X to DVD or other format

D-1 ................................. No (I do not have this)

D-2 ................................. Yes

D-3 ................................. No (I do not have this)

D-4 ......... no such thing ............... (Mfg skipped this number)

D-5 ................................. No (I do not have this)

D-6 ................................. No (I do not have this)

D-7 ......... no such thing ............... (Mfg skipped this number)

D-8 ......... no such thing ............... (Mfg skipped this number)

D-9 ................................. Yes ( Also known as " Digital S " )


(I do not have any D-1, D-3, D-5, D-6 machines but am looking to aquire these machines)


As my small video & film transfer business grows (30+ years) I may add more of the above machines to my lab.


I have many exotic and standard types of professional and consumer formats- some common and some rare- see all of my listings. If you have a tape that is odd or unusual- I often but not always have that machine- even vintage models. Got a strange tape- email me I probably have that machine in my collection.


Price is negotiable and qty discounts are available.


My typical customer is

1. Schools/Student work

2. TV stations

3. Ad agencies

4. Studios

5. Medical

6. Misc companies which had tapes created for them by outside agencies

7. Other: videophiles / enthusiasts running small companies specializing in certain work- weddings, educational, instructional, graphics, film etc.


I'm a one-man shop and occasionally do professional or pro-sumer tape transfers. Most of my business is for small film and tape formats for the consumer market- see my other ads for consumer tape formats too.
