DVD vs Digital Files? Which one is for me?

  • Updated

If you’re hoping to view your old family memories on a large TV, then the DVD will be just fine. Our DVDs are a great way to gather friends and family for a night of laughs, joy, and reminiscing, as you view your memories together.

However, we understand that gathering together with loved ones can be difficult. It's not Thanksgiving or Christmas every weekend. A USB thumb drive, as a different option, provides you with digital files that are easy share with friends and family far away.

With Legacybox, you can order digital files by choosing the USB thumb drive upon checkout. Why do you want one? There are a million and one reasons why, but here are just a few:

  • Backing up to places like Dropbox
  • Viewing on your computer
  • Editing on your computer
  • Storing on your hard drive
  • Uploading to online video platforms, like YouTube or Vimeo
  • Sharing with friends and family

If you've already ordered and you'd like to switch to a thumb drive and/or get both DVDs and the thumb drive, don't worry! When your box arrives it will include upgrade stickers you can place on your box to indicate how you'd like to change your order.


Please note: only video items (tapes and film reels) are converted to DVD disc. If you send in photo items or audio items, they are converted to CD disc, which will not work in a DVD player. You can find more info here.
