But while your collection of Neighbours episodes circa 1990 may not be worth a lot, there are probably a few home videos to which you might be a little more attached.

In steps the MAGIX Rescue Your Videotapes package. This handy little kit comprises a USB converter and software package. Simply plug your video player in at one end (be it VHS, Video8, S-VHS, Hi9 or Betamax) and your PC at the other. Then get ripping.

You can then burn your vids to a number of different disk formats including VCD, DVD and even Blu-ray.

If you're feeling ambitious, you can use the editing software to cut together your priceless memories and even slap on a flashy title and menu screen.

Or you could just convert your Betamax copy of Star Wars and be done with it.
