I had old 8mm film copied to a DVD and want to add music to the DVD while watching the 6 minutes of vidieo on the DVD. I also want to slow the film vidieo down to match the music. Hope I haven't confused anyone.
You will need to use the copied film as a video source, and the music you want, in digital form, as an audio source. You will then need audio-video editing software to alter the playback speeds of one or both and mix them together.
That's going to take time, learning how to use the software. It will not be quick, or easy, but you will probably be able to find some freeware for the purpose. Free software usually has poor or no documentation, which will make learning harder..
You will need to decide what sort of output format you want, which will mostly depend on where & how you want to watch it in future. This isn't an irrevocable decision: you could save the output as, say, XVid/MP3, and convert it to video CD or any other form later. That's a separate issue..
Just remember that you are choosing to spend effort instead of money. You could always hire this done instead.

If my memory serves me correctly, you should have an adjustment knob somewhere... and it seems like it was marked "frame". Another caution: I assume you know that 8mm and Super 8mm are not interchangeable. However, some of the old projectors (like a Kodak I had) had a twist knob that would change the projector back and forth in order to play either film. Just some thoughts...
The only way to do that is to play it in a device that plays Hi8 tapes and somehow converts it to a digital signal (likely through firewire as DV), then capture it to your computer just like a digital camcorder.
There are several ways: 1. Buy a device (like a camera) that plays it, output through RCA cables to your other camera or tape deck that is digital through the line in, and then just record that. (Alternatively, you could put that signal into a DVD-R machine and record onto a DVD, then just copy the files off the DVD, if you don't have a way to capture DV through firewire.) 2. Buy a device that plays Digital8 (same tapes, but miniDV FORMAT) and output directly from the tape through firewire. This means you must buy a SONY (only brand that made [now discontinued] Digital8) camcorder or deck [if decks were made, though those are usually expensive].
So, the simple answer: get a Digital8 camera and capture, or get another digital camcorder and a Hi8 camcorder and play through the digital one into the computer.
Buying a Sony Handycam (OLDER model) will be your easiest option, and probably possible on ebay, etc., for $100-$200.
Short of this, you could look to a friend or a professional solution for just getting the tape copied (like VHS->DVD services exist, there is probably some place you can mail your tape to).
EDIT: I should add: You included "8mm" in your title-- that is a bit confusing. 8mm refers to a few formats. One is film (obviously not what you're referring to), but then there is the older "8mm" tape format; it's like Hi8, but I believe it's actually not the same tape-- unlike Digital8 and Hi8which share a physical medium. I don't think you can get an 8mm -> Digital device, so you'd need to go through the RCA cables, as described above. [And though Hi8 is actually 8mm in width, it's not quite the same as the other "8mm" format... for whatever odd reason someone decided.... ] However, I suspect you ARE actually working with Hi8, so this shouldn't be a problem.
1. Go to your iTunes Music folder on your computer.
Windows: (Documents & Settings > [your username] > )My Documents > My Music > iTunes > iTunes Music
Mac: [your home folder] > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music 2. Copy this entire folder to a CD, DVD or flash drive. You could try zipping it and emailing it if you only have a song or two, but anything beyond that, and it will be too large. 3. At your second (recipient) computer, insert the CD, DVD or flash drive. 4. Open iTunes 5. Choose File > Add to Library... 6. Select the iTunes Music folder in your recordable media in the dialog box 7. Give it a few minutes to import all the files 8. Done!
If you have DVD Recorder then hook your Video-8 camera in analog AV input and burn a DVD, this will convert analog video/ audio signal of camcorder in digital format and transfer the data on DVD as well. Put that dvd in computer and save it in computer.
It's about four and a half minutes long, and shows how to clean the various components that need cleaning beforehand as well as how to thread the projector.
However, I wish you good bloody luck on finding a bulb, if you don't have one that still works. From the look of the unit, it uses a DAR bulb, which was delisted (read: went out of production) thirty years ago. You can sometimes find new old-stock (NOS) DAR bulbs on eBay, but expect to pay $30 to $35 apiece plus shipping for them.
only sony really supported 8mm look for any trv model cam on ebay etc and make sure you tapes were hi 8mm-not digital 8-digital 8 won't play on reg 8mm cam-need to get model that supports both formats then-trv480-look at tapes and if they say digital and/or hi 8 they may have been in digital and get the 480 it will work with both types
"Copy Protected Signal." Means that the data you are trying to Ahem... "Copy" probably has copy protection inbuilt into the disk & data. This is done to stop copying of pirate DVD's etc. Part of the DRM put out by the TV/Music/Film industry. There are programs that can strip protection and enable one to copy said DVD's.. AnyDVD is one that springs to mind, as does Dameon Tools, and many others simply Google for them.
