My vhs c adaptor wont play my casette. It plays for two seconds then the power to the vcr turns off. Yes I have tried several vcrs

This is because something is jamming either in the adaptor mechanism (nightmare devices at best!) or in the tape cassette.
If you can afford to, escape from this dinosaur technology and enjoy a digital camcorder with a hard drive and/or recording on cards.
No moving parts! No tape tangles, jams or breaks! HD quality!
Well worth considering.

VHS tape created in France

If it was made with the French standard you will need a machine capable of playing SECAM formats. Your cheapest way to go is to locate a video transfer business which deals in tape transfer. They should have the equipment which can play the tape and record it in a format which you can use. Cost should not be that much.

How do i go about transfering vhs-c video from an

You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.

Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.

Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.

The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.

VHS-C tape jumpy when playing back

My apologies, I overlooked the "-C" in your post.

This problem is due to a type ofcopy protection built into vcr's.

"Macrovision" copy-protection is merely a weakening of a particular part of the signal that makes up the picture and was primarily intended to prevent people from copying videotapes. I imagine almost everyone's seen it but probably didn't know what they were seeing: the resulting picture is a little jittery and is in black-and-white or alternates between black-and-white and color. The reason you're seeing a blue screen is because modern televisions, in the absence of a signal or a weak signal, will just show a blue screen instead of snow or a very poor picture. As mentioned above, you can get around Macrovision by inserting into your connections a signal amplifier that specifically amplifies the portion of the signal that Macrovision diminishes.

How do I play a JVC EHG tape ?

There is a VHS cartridge for a JVC EHG 30 VHSC tape. It's called a Panasonic PV-P1 Adapter, and think you can find one on eBay. I've used one before, and from what I remember, it worked pretty well. The only bad thing about it is that you need an AA battery to operate it. Well, I hoped this helped, if you still need it.
