How can I scan my photos and videos?

Episode 1621 (1:56:54)

Steve from Chatsworth, CA
DVD

Steve wants to know a way to convert photos and videos into a DVD. Leo says that ScanCafe is a site that will send you a box and you fill it and then they will scan it all and return them with a DVD of your memories. It's not that cheap, but they will clean up your negatives and give you the best possible image. But you also have to be OK with mailing your photos and videos, trusting you'll get them back. If you're not, you can always just use a camera and an easel and take pictures of each image. As for the video, well there are products that will enable you to record into a video camera while projecting your movie film into it, and there are other ways to do that. But they're not all that great quality-wise.
