"Tapes degrade 10-20% over 10 to 25 years. If you've been holding on to home videos since the 1990s, there is a good chance some of the footage is already skewed due to aging. Kodak recommends converting your VHS/Camcorder tapes to DVDs because disks last over four times longer than tapes.
If CDs can last over 100 years, why is the lifespan of VHS tapes so much shorter? The answer lies in the magnetic charge. Over time, the magnetic particles lose charge in a phenomenon called remanence decay. This causes discoloration, blacked out scenes, and eventually complete loss of footage. The best way to preserve tapes is to do convert the tapes to DVD" - Kodak News
