Question about Hitachi VMH710A Hi-8 Analog Camcorder

Open Question

Download a digital HI-8 using an Hitachi VH H710

I borrowed a Sony HI-8 digital camera over the weekend and made a Hi 8 digital tape.  I had to return the camera.  I am now trying to get the digital video into my mac and editi it in iMovie.   I have a Hi-8 Hitachi VM H710A available.  It's an analog camera, but all I want to do is to use it as a player to play the tape into my computer.  Is this possible?  If so, how do I do it?  There is obviously no fire wire cable port...  Thanks!

you should have a driver came with your camcorder to install to your computer and it should compatible with your OS vista. USB wires or Firewares also use on this operation. upload with using ULEAD movie maker. save it like any video types that you like.

How to play tapes not recorded by Sony Handycam DCR-TRV130 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder


It is my understanding that the camera won't playback those formats, timecode or not. There are VCR type units for the HI8 and other formats. They should be cheap on eBay now...

Can i use a vhs-c tape in my handycam


No you cannot. A Digital-8 camcorder can read 8mm video and Hi-8 video, as well as the Digital8 format, but it cannot read or play VHS or VHS-C tapes.

My camcorder is spoilt and I am left with many mini DV tapes which I cannot download to the PC without the camcorder. Is there any solution for this?


since it is in digital format a standered VCR wont read them the hi-8 tapes have a bigger VCR tape you can put the hi-8 tape in and insert that into a VCR but the hi-8 is an analog tape and.mini-DV is digital "DV = Digital Video" so a standard VCR wont read them the only way is to borrow a friends Mini-DV camera and copy all your tapes over. they do make a Mini-DV player but even the cheap ones cost more than a new camcorder would! Sorry to hear about your camcorder I hope this helps

I have a Sony DCR-260 and I have the operating manual but I lost the computer manual and the cable that came with it. How do I download videos to a PC?


hi there
based on your camcorder model number it is digital 8 based, so assuming you are using digital 8 tapes you will need a firewire lead (£5) ish. you will also need a firewire input on your p.c. if you havn't got one you can get a card for about £10 and fit it yourself. its not hard, honest !
if you are using ordinary 8mm tapes you will need an anologue video card, bit more expensive but easy to fit. video editing software will be needed, try pinnacle studio version 7/8/9/ on e bay, should be less than £20.

hope this helps

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital-8 won't calibrate tapes to be able to view


hi there. i just actually had this problem right now. and heres how i fixed it :) it had the error so i took out the tape left it ejected for about 5 seconds. then put the tape back. it read for a little then errored again so it was close. next what i did is plugged the camera in (last time this error happened i plugged in the power and it fixed it) still no fix so i took off the battery waited 5 seconds then put it back on. after that i ejected the tape again and re put it in and it worked! you could try anyone of those things. and usually they work for me. maybe it has something to do with the cameras being old.

I don't know about the PAL version, but the NTSC version does. It automatically detects the type of tape and adjusts.
