Playback 8mm camcorder tape fuzzy


8 mm and the newer super 8 mm video tapes are different. You can't use super 8 mm in old player. And old tapes won't play well in new super 8 mm players. Like Sony!

How can i convert tapes to dvd


You can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using A/V interface to transfer the recordings to Computer.
Once you transfer the recordings from tape to computer, you can use any burning software to burn the recordings to DVDs.
In order to capture the analog videos, you can use the Windows Movie Maker available in the Computer.

HAVE CCD-TRV22 , WHAT VIDEO TAPE NUMBER DO I


Though 8mm filming was and still is the best safest way to make movies Sony have stopped producing 8mm tapes, I use the brand new Digital 8 tapes on my brand new Sony camera, would never dream of going over to Hard drive/SD card/DVD recording cameras as the image will not last as long as it will on 8mm tape.
Also the 8mm cameras are much better made than anything since 2006.
If you type 8mm movie tapes in your search engine you will find 100's of firms still selling your tapes, they will help you choose the right one ok?

Video camera will not playback tape smoothly - jumps along


Please get into town, and buy the 8mm Camera cleaning tape from W.H. Smiths, Currys, Comet, Maplins, put that in your camera on record mode for 20 seconds and then remove it, and carry on filming, it is just dirty heads you have got, take care.

I have an old Samsung VP-A30 video camera with loads of 8mm tapes, and would like to transfer to either TV/Video/PC. Unfortunately, there seems to be just one AV output source, which feels rather fragile,...


Hello Ron,
Well that is like you say an old camera, mind you 8mm is still far the best and safest way to store your valued films as it has kept the data on those tapes longer than any DVD ever did, remember unlike we thought 10 years ago a DVD only has around 8 to 10 years life span, we are finding CD & DVD productions that are over 8 years old just wont play any longer.
Kodak put a report on the net 7 years ago that they found even some quite costly DVD recorded media had gone blank and refused to play after a very short time in storage.
I think you ought to look around Ebay, find a nice HI8 digital camera, put your loved tapes in that, plug the new Firewire cable into the camera, and your PC and download your treasured items to another media like DVD.
Keep your 8mm tapes in a draw safe though because they will out-live all DVD recordings I can honestly say that.

Hi 8 tapes will only play on a Hi 8 machine. I would recommend you search for a place that will do the video transfer for you. There are several in my town and likely you could find one on the internet.

Yashica Samurai Video 8 playback


Hi,
If you're interested in having your video8 recordings digitized, you can check out our website at www.digisize.ca.  We offer a convenient digitizing service at an excellent price.
For your tapes, if you've tried it on several cameras, it may be that your tapes have been damaged or deteriorated with old age.  You can take them to a professional to have them cleaned and treated, but that is no guarantee that they will work thereafter, I'm afraid.
