Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
I have about 80 8mm tapes which were shot with an old Sony Handycam (forgot the exact model) and later with a Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280. Now I have a serious problem and that is, I can't see about 60 of these tapes! The only difference I see (almost all these are Sony 8mm tapes) - the tapes I CAN'T see have "NTSC" written in Red & the tapes I CAN see have "NTSC" written in White! Is there anything to do with Analog & Digital or what! I am totally baffled! Can somebody please help me to resolve this serious problem? I
The older tapes were shot on a 8mm camcorder and the camcorder you have wil not play them becasue it doesn't have backwards compatability with the older format. The tapes you recorded are on a digital 8 camcorderr and it is different encoding than the one you recorded the other 60 tapes with. You will need to find either a dcr-trv 350 trv 530 trv 730 ect as these have the ability to play all the tapes.
Or find an older 8mm camcorder to play your tapes with.
Hope this helps
