    When I playback my captured video it plays OK on my camcorder, but when I download it into my editing software (Arcsoft) the audio is choppy and the captured playback is breaking up badly. As, everyone always says it worked fine before, but I did start to notice this issue several years ago. I bought a new digital camera that takes video so, I put my camcorder aside, but now I want to use it for other projects. I have set the caputure setting in my Arcsoft program to different one's without success?

If your computer has a TV Card you can connect your Camcorder directly to the TV Card and use Windows Moviemaker to record you movies digitally.

8mm head cleaning tape should be available at most electronic stores.
If the tape does not help after two or three attempts you are best to take it to a techincian.

BTW: The tape is one of the best backup mediums. Transferring to DVD is a great option for viewing only.

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.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD

Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.
