Re: T-160 vhs tapes
No never cut the video tape at all.

I answered this previously, thinking you were referring to the machine, not the tape itself. See if a different tape (perhaps even different brand) works okay. If not, look at the machine. I have seen tapes go bad, but generally it is the machine (or camcorder).
Please do clean the head your VHS by using special head cleaner and check also your VHS mechanism and ensure it working well.
If still problem, your VHS head is defective and suggest to replace with new one
You don't specify the adapter you have, but most load from the top. The main thing here is that VHS and VHS-C are both the same size of tape. Whether they are recorded in SVHS mode or not will not affect the adapter, just whether or not you get a picture. Theadapter only allows you to put a compact cassette (VHS-C) into a standard VHS VCR. The adapter will require batteries to allow it to place the VHS-C cassette tape into the proper position for use in the VCR.
There's no way! They are two vastly different systems. Video8 tape is nearly 1/4 inch wide whereas VHS tape is 1/2 inch wide - and thats just the begining! Electronically, everything about them is different which is why Video8 came out from Sony in 1985 to improve on VHS systems and camcorder quality. The higher quality version Hi8 followed in 1990 which made it's way into the professional market too. I used the both formats for TV news and other programmes 1989-2000 when I went over to DVCAM, a professional compact cassette system also from Sony so I know the 8mm systems inside out.
just google: "blank vhs tapes" and you will find local and distant sources for your needs. By the way, VHS Tape is now obsolete, you should change your format to DVD disks. Try this site: http://www.tapestockonline.com/index.html
You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.
Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.
Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.
The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.
Well, it's always good to know the exact cause. Your post may help others. I deal in media issues all the time in the data processing world. Though not always the cause, it is unwise to at least examine the media when the hardware won't load it, and try others to certify the hardware functionality.
If your tape isn't actually broken why don't you try loading it and immediately fast-forwarding it past the defect? It should load fine a couple of feet into the tape. You may miss the beginning of your program but it won't be a total loss.
