Re: Hod you go from a cassette to DVD??
Sony DCR-TRV510 is digital handycam and records video signal in digital format on tape.
Digital Video signal requires a software Picture Package installed in PC to transfer files. You can check camera box to find software cd for the same.
You also need to hook camera trough iLink port to iLink / DV port in PC. You can find details in user manual of handycam and still need help, let me know.

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes. There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"
CCD-TRV208E is analog Sony Handycam and I think tape was recorder on Digital Handycam. Digital handyacam model starts with letters DCR-xxx so locate a digital handycam to get tape recordings. I got this idea when you said, only getting crackling noise and blue screen.
In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.
Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.
If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
It sounds like there's a problem with the tape loading mechanism. The first thing you should try is seeing if the camcorder will allow you to run a head cleaner through it (probably not the problem, but something everyone should do regularly, but most people don't).
If that's not the issue, then it's probably something that you can't fix yourself. You should have information in the box that tells you where to send it to for repair.
