Question about Sony Handycam® DCR-TRV250 Digital-8 Camcorder
I haven't used my handycam in quite a while and when I went to use it, I removed the old tape (TDK Hi8 MP) and inserted a new tape - (Sony 8mm MP120) and it made a very funny noise, like the teeth weren't matching up correctly. I could have sworn I was told that any 8mm tape would work in this camera, and I thought I was doing it right by purchasing the Sony brand tapes. I bought a 3-pack of tapes and all 3 of them sounded this way. I put the TDK tape back in and it worked. So, I cannot find these TDK tapes anywhere but online. Do I really have to use ONLY the TDK ones?
Try using a smaller tapetime, the grinding noise your hearing is the gears of the tape take up within the casette not the camera, it seems the Sony tapes are 120mins long and the Sony tapes are heavier than TDK and your spool take up on the camera can't take it. the TDK tapes you were previously using may have been a shorter time than 120minute?...try any Hi 8 60min tapes instead. not the 120, they can be too heavy for the take up spool motor of the camera and all its doing is stretching and winding the cassette tape and unable to pull it with a 120 min cassette

may be your camera not design to play the analog tape...there are some model that can playback a analog tape...i think your camera is for digital playback only.... check your user manual

I believe all Sony model DCR-TRV2XX and 3XX would play Hi 8 and ST8
Such as DCR-TRV265, DCR-TRV285 DCR-TRV340, DCR-TRV355
I hope that give you some ideas

Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.
