If you have a video card that has a video in port, plug in your 8mm camcorder and capture the movie. Depending on the quality you save it as determines the size of the file.
This is the simplest way in leiu of paying to have it done or "projecting" the image onto another media physically.
There are machines designed to do this of course but they're not cheap. If you know someone with a Digital8 camcorder. Sony D8 backward support V8 and Hi8, so you can just simply insert the V8/Hi8 tapes into the D8 camcorder, then transer them to computer in DV format through firewire cable.
Let me know if this helped

Can you use hi 8 tape in the ES900 Analog Camcorder


I believe this camcorder is 8mm only, so you won't be able to use a Hi8 tape with it. They will not play right in your camcorder.

How do i transfer my videos from my canon dc330 into my comuter


Hey! As far as I know, Canon DC330 camcorders records high-quality MPEG-2 footage directly to a mini DVD-R or DVD-RAM. So you can watch it with your DVD-RAM drive onyour PC, or you can convert the recorded dvds into videos and play it with players such as Windows Media Player.
I'd like to share you DVD Converter Software which can help you convert dvd to common video and convert between videos. Hope that helps.

Need to convert video to avi format


when recording on DVD, there's certain rules that you should always rememver:
before recording on the DVD, you need to initialize it (Menu>disk-options> initialize)
for the moment, in order to get the videos, you need to download the RAW format converter from Canon.com and then you can use Windows Movie maker (simplest but not the only one) to creat, edit, or convert the format of your clips.

Canon es900 8mm camcorder won't allow tape insertion


Canon ES series camcorder was designed with 1000 hour capacitors on the processor boards. When the time comes these capaictors loose value and create problems for the main computer to communicate with other mechanical system in the camcorder. We were able to service well 7 years ago but the life of these component has aged too much to make it good anymore. I wish I have a better news for you but the success repair on 'ES model is very slim and if repaired, the labor charge may run many times over of the value of this camcorder. You can probably obtain a newer used camcorder at decent price and get all you tapes into DVD quick. Good luck -James

Eject

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To manually remove the tape from the Canon ES900 video camera do the following after reading all below.
1. Remove the two small screws from the tape door face. I show the entire carriage removed.
2. Look for the small metal peg on the left side, about 1” down from the top of the tape carriage.
3. Using something small push down on the peg to release the tape door.
4. Important Note: Most likely the tape will still be wrapped around the video head and held there by two capstans, (one on each side of the head)
5. Carefully pull out the tape not damage it any more than necessary. Keep in mind this might cause the player to “eat” the tape at this area so smooth the tape here with your fingers (nothing metal) and wind the tape to begin playing past this area if possible.
It seems this is a common problem with this unit; Canon should have put a better motor here in this critical area.
Good luck, hope this helps everyone,

Self-eject


Hi there, I think I can offer some info, though it's not good news.
This cassette ejection is controled by a small motor in the bottom of the cassette carriage (see picture). Unfortunatly whether the problem be this cheap little motor or a switch that controls it, taking it to a repair shop would cost much more than this little camcorder is worth.8477600.jpg Sorry for the bad news, I have the same camera as you can see it's taken apart now. I posted another solution to get the tape out if you come to that problem.

Hope this helps
