I have a fan page and would like to change it into a group without losing my fans and retaining my videos and pictures.

Is it possible to transform a Facebook fan page into a group?

No. That's not possible. – dnbrv Mar 29 '12 at 13:21

It's not possible to convert a page into a group or the reverse. Below is the quote from the Group -> Page help on Facebook and gives good advice on how to do it manually.

According to this Facebook Help

It is currently not possible to convert Facebook groups into Pages. We recommend that you create a Page and notify your group members about it. Note that you will not be able to send your group a message if your group has more than 5,000 members.

I believe he's asking about the opposite of that, i.e. page -> group. – Alex In Paris Mar 29 '12 at 15:19
You're totally right. I read that page wrong, but it's still not possible even if I can't find a source for it. Updating my answer. – Dez Mar 29 '12 at 15:55
