Transfer Film/Video/Audio to DVD/CD/Memory Stick/External Hard Drive

Marilyn from Copy Catz Video Editing and Transfer Services

My personal preference would be a memory stick or an external passport drive (small and usb powered).
Memory sticks or external hard drives are now the most ideal media on which to transfer your old video/audio/film reels/vinyl/slides/photographs etc. DVDs and CDs are also good to use, however who knows how long it will be before they too are outdated. With a memory stick or ext HD, old media is converted to a file format which means that you can copy it as many times as you want and store it in as many different locations as possible such as other external Hard Drives, directly onto your computer, or even in the Cloud or Dropbox etc. Be sure to make multiple copies of your precious memories and preferably keep copies offsite so that you can never lose them!

Are you prepared for Omicron?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

With experts predicting that numbers are about to rise rapidly we all need to be prepared.

A basic medical kit should include the following:
Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, a thermometer and re-hydration medicines like Hydralyte. Sore throat treatments such salt gargles, honey, or perhaps a local anesthetic lozenge or spray could also be useful.

Also think about having a plan as to how you get basics like bread and milk if you are isolating. Have you talked to neighbours about how you can help each other?
