Optical Formats
Whether you have a magneto-optical disk containing data from a VMS system with files that you need to be able to access under Windows, or proprietary MRI scans in your optical archive, our data conversion experts will give you access to your data. Alternatively, we can repair or sell Magneto Optical (MO) drives and libraries from our wide stock, including Plasmon Optical and UDO products.

With our own fully trained specialist engineers, we are able to carry out repairs on all manufacturers' optical drives and optical libraries (jukeboxes) in-house, and are able to offer a full six months warranty on all repaired items.  Aside from our standard service, with a 4/5 day turn-around, we also offer an optional express service with a 24-hour turn-around repair service.
Our optical conversion service involves converting your image files from optical platters including 3.5", 5.25", 12", 14", WORM, Permanent or Ablative WORM, and Read/Write cartridges to CD, DVD or in some cases, tape. Our expertise includes processing platters of all sizes including small MB varieties, 1.3GB, 2.6GB, 5.2GB and 9.1GB platters in "WORM" or "Re-Writable" formats. Whilst it is useful to know your system type, application type and the software details, this is not necessary as we can conduct a full analysis to determine the disk format and application.
We can help convert scanned images that are archived on AS/400 platforms in MO:DCA type format to TIFF, Panasonic 650MB PD cartridges to CD, Pioneer WORM cartridges to DVDs or any other optical data access issues.

"Thank you so much for all your help - Data Recovery Specialists are a real life saver!  I do not know what I would have done without the data you recovered.  We would have probably had to re-record all the location shots, which would have been time consuming and very expensive"  BBC Wales
