Hi. Yes, especially since it sounds as if you may still have your Video 8 camera, but if not then get one on eBay etc. - you could always sell it back when finished.
I think you may want to record the movies in another form, e.g. DVD, so they can be played more easily on PC or TV.
If so, a VCR or DVD recorder would still do the job but it would be best to play the movies with the Video 8 camera plugged into a DVD/Hard drive recorder. This would best allow editing before later saving onto DVD from the hard drive.
You could get video capture software to record the movies onto PC but I have not tried this and think it might prove more complicated.
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.
USB1.1 port can generally handle transfer speeds approaching 5.5Mbps between PC and DVD Camcorder.
Smooth playback of movies requires 5.5Mbps speeds or above. If the PC you are using has some compatibility issues
with the USB driver software, the USB port may drop to speeds below 5.5Mbps causing short pauses during video
It is recommended to copy the movie file from the DVD Camcorder to the hard disc drive (HDD) on your PC, then playback the movie from the hard drive.
No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive.
Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder.
HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products.
HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.
Yes, A finalized DVD-R disc provides playback capability to most home DVD players and DVD drives.
(An 8cm DVD-R disc recorded by this camcorder may not be able to be played back by some DVD players / DVD drives, depending on the player, the DVD-R disc and the condition of the recording.)
Write Once –
After finalizing, a DVD-R disc can be played back in approx. 95% of home DVD players and PC
Capacity – 30-60 minutes (depending on the selected filming mode) of high quality motion video
can be stored on a single of a disc.
DVD-RAM allows for recording and re-recording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times
per disc. DVD-RAM is like a removable hard drive. Compatibility for video playback of DVD-RAM
in standard home DVD players is fairly low.
DVD-RW cannot store true .jpeg digital still photo’s like DVD-RAM, however it is re-writable and
has 80% compatibility with home DVD players.
