Question about Sony Hi8 Hi-8 Tape

1 Answer

Hi8 camera tapes

Hello i have numerous HI8 tapes from my camera that i was just about to record onto my dvd recorder when my son decided to pick up my camera and drop it smashing it into various peices.
I have alot of cherished memories on those tapes.
Any idea of how or what i can use to get the images off those tapes.
Which other types of camera will allow me to play the tapes so i can record them onto disk?

How do you extract audio from Maxell Hi8 tape?


easy: locate a local audio/video transfer place or videography studio that you can hand these off to. Request mp3 format on CD as the mode of delivery. Usually they have the equipment needed and it isn't very expensive. Some will even clean up the sound for you.
Slightly more difficult: locate a hi-8 player, buy a $30 conversion cable that goes from the hi-8 camera or hi-8 deck to your computer (type of cable will depend on the type of camera you get and type of computer you have), download video editing software and capture the tapes. Once the files are in the computer you can export as mp3 and burn a disc.

I have a GE CG818A Camcorder, when I play it it only plays black and white. Was wondering if there is a used Sony or any camcorder that would play my Video8 P6-120MP tape, in color.


I have the exact same camera and same exact same problem. Any analog Video8 or Hi-8 camcorder or VCR will play these tapes.

By using the same cassettes as Hi8, many (NOT ALL) Digital8 (produced by Sony exclusively) camcorders are able to play analog Video8/Hi8 recordings, preserving compatibility with already recorded analog tapes.

you can connect Digital8 camcorders to your computer to download your movies for editing or Internet use.

As of 2008, Digital8 camcorders have been removed from the equipment offered by Sony.

While playing an 8mm tape that was recorded, I have the problem where there was no sound from the camcorder and the picture was grainy.


sounds like the record head(s) may be very dirty, check them, they should clean and shiny if dulled an brown with tape residue, you can clean them with a lint free cloth and head cleaner. tape based cleaners cassette may not be good enough if the heads are very dirty. ensure you give the heads enough time to dry after cleaning 2 mins should be good then run a test record to check them.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

How to repair a hi8 tape


what's wrong with it? If the tape is broke then you might get away with super glueing it but i'd record the video elsewhere and bin it afterwards as it will only ruin the heads

If you are asking if there is an adapter to let you watch these movies on your VCR like a VHS-C, as far as I know, there is no such adapter.

I have a Fuji Hi8 MP p6-120 that will not play


Check the top of the tape. There is a slider which open a slot or closes it. It should be closed.
