I have a Fugi Hi8 MP 120 minute cassette (Maxwell XR Metal). I would like to view the video I have on it, but I no longer have the camcorder I used to make the video. Can I play the cassette on any other device?

Yup, you can playback your Hi8 tape on any other Hi8 branded camcorder or edit deck. You should be able to rent a Hi8 edit deck from a video editing supply store in your area. Hook it directly into a computer to digitize it, or into a DVD recorder to quickly burn a disc out of it without editing.

Many places offer Album / Betamax / Audio tape / Hi8 etc to DVD transfer services if you are not inclined to buy / rent the gear you need to transfer.

I hope that helps.

Hello,

yes of course, you can play the cassette on other devices as long as the cassette can fit into the device that you want to play it with.

It will definitely play.

Good luck.

    Hello,

    check the link below and scroll to: "TWIN CASSETTE DECK, WITH USB - ITR01 - ION"








    http://cpc.farnell.com/1/3/pc-cassette-p...
    Or
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...
    Or
    http://www3.dealtime.com/xPP-vcrs-hi8_ca...

    You can check any of the above link for a player that will fit your Hi8 cassette.

    If I may ask, why don't you convert the cassette into DVD disc, to save you more money, rather than buying the device just to play a cassette.

    Good luck.

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.

What type of cassette do i need for a sharp VL-A10 viewcam 8


You need to use a tape that says 8mm or Video8 only. I have provided a link to the type of tape that we would use.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MP-Video8-tape-120min/dp/B0009WUCG6/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1284056100&sr=1-7

There are tapes that say Hi8 and Dig8 on them. These tapes will not work properly in your camcorder because they are the wrong format. Your camcorder would probably chew the tape at some point if you tried to use this kind.

Hope this has helped.

Hi8 won't eject cassette


There is a broken plastic part inside the cassette and needs to be replaced. Mostly due to cassette tape improper position and camera jam (tape jam).

SONY MP 120 8mm video cassette


Problem is dirty / clogged video head of v-8 player or camcorder what ever you are using for playback. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette for head cleaning.
Please check tapes on another camcorder as tapes seems OK.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

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.

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.
