There are several ways of converting your tapes to a digital format.
1. By routing it through a DV camcorder with AV-input (these are increasingly rare though. (using firewire).
2. By using a device like this, which converts to DV. (also connects via firewire). http://www.dv247.com/invt/23453
3. By using a device which captures to MPEG2.

The cheapest way is option 3, but it requires a working camcorder. You should purchase a device similar to this: http://www.avforums.com/forums/attachments/camcorders-video-editing/85846d1216145397-camcorder-computer-easycap.jpg


If you don't have your camcorder anymore, or it isn't functioning, you should try to get a second-hand 8mm camcorder with firewire. This way you are able to directly convert your tapes to your pc.
If you can't find a firewire camcorder you could just settle with a good functioning 8mm camcorder but you will have to buy a capture device as mentioned above.
Good luck!

My picture is all snowy,how do i fix this


Sounds like dirty heads.
Try a head cleaning tape. If after two or three tries it does not improve, take the camera for a professional clean and adjustment.

Trying to watch tapes when i was younger but the picture is black and white, fuzzy, jumping up and down. how can i fix it?


The tapes that you are using has gone bad and is possible to have a fungus on the tape. If you can get the tape to be cleaned without any further damage or copied to a CD/DVD at a studio it will be better that to run and spoil what is remaining of old memories.
have it checked at a professional studio to help you out to clean and re-record.
Over a period of time Tapes deteriorate and this is a result of the aging , except unless you had taken care of by keeping the tapes protected.

Hitachi Camcorder VM E220A - After load cassette "TAPE" error


There is a mode switch within the deck assembly that is probably dirty but not cleanable. I haven't repaired one of those for some years and am sure spares are no longer available for it. The 58 is V8 format and should be OK but may show similar symptoms due to age, in the future.

Tape wont eject


The deck may have went. Try bringing it to a local camera shop to get it out for you.

Hiya


The only way to do this is to use video capture software and an input card that has a yellow video input.

Camcorder hookup for tv?


I am successfully using my old Quasar VM-D51 camcorder as a WebCam and it works great. My computer has a TV Capture Card with an analog input (I am using the RCA plug on it). The camera has a output connection on the lower right side (just below the hand strap). You will need a mini plug to RCA adapter to make the transition. The software for the TV Capture Card does the rest. Radio Shack has all of the hardware you will need. Hope this helps. Good Luck--buzzard14@verizon.net
