Do cassette tapes work better than dvds?
DVDs have a better,newer technology incorporated.
The quality of the DVD movies is higher than the cassette's and the sound can be on more channels, 6 usually, while at a cassette sound is on 2 channels maximum.
Is there a better way to transfer mp3 files to cassette tapes than recording from computer speakers?
DVDs are a digital medium, whereas VHS tapes are an analogue medium. All digital movie mediums, including DVDs, are compressed in order to fit the huge amount of data (an image for every movie frame) into the available space. This compression can be seen if you look for it - particularly in darker areas, or large blocks of colour with little movement from frame to frame. Technically then, an analogue picture will always be of…
Computer tapes really have no advantages in comparison to modern computer storage technologies. They are faster than punch cards, and they are much more reliable for backup than using nothing. When you are backing up data, tape drives are more convenient than using floppy drives for that purpose. So they were better than older storage technologies for backup and archival purposes, but not any better than using modern technologies.
A mini cassette was used in transcriber machines. It is a bit longer in length than the micro cassette, but the same height. The reason I know this is because I have transcribed from both sides for doctor's office, beginning back in the 1990s. The mini was never used for very long. Kind of like the beta and the VHS tapes for video recording. VHS won out over beta.
dvds are a standard definition media that stores sd video. Blu-rays are the next gen media for high definition video. also, blu-rays have 7.1 surround sound and dvds have 5.1 surround sound so blu-rays are better. also blu-rays are more scratch resistant than dvds. blu-rays can store more video and special features than dvds. blu-rays are more robust. blu-rays are more expensive blu-rays are rarer than dvds.
Why did the price of prerecorded cassettes fall dramatically when compact discs became widely available in 1991?
Because CDs are better than tapes (for a multitude of reasons). Before CDs, manufacttureres could sell tapes at high prices because there was no better alternative. However when CDs were invented, if taped had stayed at the same inflated prices, nobody would have bought them, so the price had to come down or manufacturers would have loads of tapes priced really high, competing with (better) CDs.
Yes and if you have a HD TV they are upscaled to HD and look great. The PS3 also will play DVDs that you burn on Your Media Center computer of TV shows you recorded. It has played everything much better than in my Sony DVD/VCR combo player so that I no longer even consider using it to play DVDs. Of course it also Plays Blu Ray discs and the pictures look better than the…
VHS tapes share the same status as most twenty year old rusting cars. Too old to be useful and not rare enough to be a prized possession. As a storage medium, VHS tapes are poor quality, bulky, difficult to handle and unreliable. They will never serve as archives of high quality content and they have no practical benefits compared to DVDs. One day, in years to come, they will have a value as a piece…
Yes the PS3 will play the DVDs that I have made in the Media Center computer. It will also play DVD movies that were rented. They are both upscaled when played through the PS3 and look much better than view I viewed them through my DVD/VCR. Of course the PS3 also plays Blu-Ray discs and they look much better than movies from DVDs.
From to the Buckyballs official website: "We haven't heard of a single case in which Buckyballs erased or affected electronics, including from the many computer stores where Buckyballs are retailed. Better safe than sorry though; Keep Buckyballs at least a few inches away from anything that might have a magnetic storage device in or on it, including computers, cassette tapes, credit cards and hotel room keys.

Believe it or not, the cassette player is still a viable option for your car audio system. It may be rare, but the throwback to the cassettes happens more than one would think, even though the technology is a bit outdated. Much like adding a VHS/DVD combination player to your home theater system, many people make the choice to add a CD/Cassette player to their car audio system. This gives them the freedom to switch…
