Question about Hitachi VME545 Camcorder
Can anyone else shed light onto the problem I have with transferring home camcorder tapes onto VHS. I am using a fairly new (well unused) Hitachi camcorder to play tapes from the 90's which were done on a Sanyo Camcorder. At certain points on some of the tapes they go into 'fast forward' mode. You can see and hear what is going on, only very fast, like it's been taped in 'long play' and I am trying to play it on 'Single Play'? It's very strange. The tapes seem in very good condition and I only ever used them once. Thanks Mandy
It depends on what speed these tapes were first recorded on. Maybe the camcorder your trying to use to play them back do not support this tape speed I have seen this in the past. Are these 8-MM or VHS-C tapes.. Also the tapes that were recored, maybe tyhere was something wrong with the tape path and was slightly out of alighnment. I had once a Sony 8-MM camcorder and tapes a lot of stuff and then gave them to someone to watch and they would not play. I tryed the tapes again in my camcorder and they worked great. I got a test tape and tryed it in my camcorder and it turned out the tape path alighnment was off, so i had to rerecord everything I had from one camcorder to DVD so i could fix my camcorder. Good Luck
