Hi There, You can fix your tape yourself. 1- wind out tape from both sides of cassette. 2- cut both sides to form straight edges. 3- cut a small thin piece of clear scotch tape. 4- from cassette tape, put both sides together with recorded side facing down-- in other words you will be putting the scotch tape on the inside of the recorded tape. 4- line up the two ends and splice them together. - cut the excess scotch tape from the edges. Make sure there is no sticky stuff left there because if there is, it could rip out your video heads. The tape should only be played once and at that time, should be rerecorded to dvd or another media.
Hope this helps, mr cicmo

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.

I have a really old Canovision8, E40, 8mm camcorder that doesn't work anymore. What's the best solution to convert the tapes to DVD or to the computer?


Hi,
You need Hi-8 camcorder/ Hi-8 player to playback your old Video-8 tapes, hook that camcorder/ player with DVD Recorder, play video-8 tapes and burn DVDs directly.

Need to copy/transfer 8mm camcorder tapes or fix broken Camcorder


There is no adapter available because the tape size is different than VHS. If yuo can post a picture of the part that is broken, I may be able to locate one. I have a number of scrap units that I can part out. Please also indicate where you aer located in the country.

Thanks,
Dan

Tape compatibility question.


Yes. Hi8 camcorders are manufactured to work with 8mm or Hi8 tapes. The difference is the quality of the tape. 8mm tapes will provide about 270 lines of resolution where a Hi8 tape will provide up to 400. For better quality recordings, you'll want to use Hi8 tapes.
