Cross-duplicating tapes

From Home Video

This page is dedicated to those tapes with known copies having been duplicated at facilities other than those normally serving their respective releasing companies.

NOTICE: Do not add a title unless you have a copy for yourself that comes from a different duplicator than expected. If you add one based solely on eBay information, and I buy the listing in question and find out otherwise, the offending party will be blocked for one week. I get enough trouble just trying to acquire videotapes without being misled. Yours truly, The Proprietor

Notes[edit]

  • A very late pressing of the 1993 VHS release of "Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy", duplicated by Rank Video Services America, is known to be recycled off of an unsold pressing of the 1994 VHS release of "The Flintstones (1994 version)," duplicated by Technicolor Video Services. When once the unsold tape, this copy was printed on August 20, 1994, and when this copy became "Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy", another print date was printed on the tape, reading the 26th week of 1997.
