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.

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Problems transferring video to pc

You can possibly search for the drivers to the hardware. You can search for the cd that came with the hardware or you can go to radioshack and ask a computer geek there they are always willing to assist you.

Transferring video from JVC to computer

Does the Camcorder show as a new drive in your 'My Computer' list of drives? Ie C drive D drive and possibly a weirdly named one is the one you're after. You should be able to find the videos in the folders contained on that new drive. Trouble finding it? Open mycomputer with it unplugged, then plug in camera like you're going to download stills, and watch for a new drive to appear. You will have to look through out the folders until you find the videos :o) Hope this helps you,

How do I transfer hi 8 tapes to DVD without the working camcorder

Greetings jamhere,

I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Sony Hi8

If you see the line while in the camera mode (actually recording a scene), then the line will be on the recording most likely. Check your tape for damage by lifting open the front of the cassette (tab on left side of tape), pull tab back while opening cover and inspect for creases or damage. Either of these cases will be non-repairable (bad recording). If the tape path is out of line the then it may be possible to have a tech realign the tape path to correct problem.

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...

What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

How do I transfer my camcorders recordings from HI8 tape to a computer or DVD?

Do you have another video camera that will hook up to your computer? In the past, I've connected my old Hi-8 to my Mini DV, recorded the footage from the Hi-8 to the Mini DV and then digitized on the computer from the Mini DV. You will however need some video software like iMovie for this solution.
You can also, hook the Hi-8 camera up to a VCR or TV using the appropriate cable and view it that way.
