I owned a S-VHS video at one time which made VHS as good as Betamax! Anyone else remember V2000 where you could turn the tapes over like a cassette?

That lasted a long time LOL Didn't the BBC recently ask for help with some laser discs they had used to back up data in the 70's or 80's but couldn't access as they hadn't bothered to keep a machine that could read them?
Yes, the modern Doomsday Project. It needed a BBC Computer and a Laserdisc player. Only trouble was that combo was more than most schools could afford.

I worked for a company which fell into the trap of scrapping their old machines, resulting in them not being able to access their old design data. Testing updates on a customer working site is not to be recommended.
