What format are the digital files on my USB Thumb Drive?

Digital files are a great way to share your memories with friends and family. By selecting the thumb drive option at checkout, you will receive back your files in a digital format, ready to share and use on your computer. What are the formats you'll receive?


Quick Answer:


  • Videotapes: .mp4
  • Film: .mp4
