Question about Video Cameras
My sony camcorder beeps and shuts off all the time and won't charge because of it. Now we want to buy a new camcorder but we have a million family hi 8 tapes that need burned to DVD. How can we do it?
I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.
I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

You can have a video transfer service like StashSpace.Com convert your tapes for you. Its $6.95/tape for the transfer. It doesn't matter if your camcorder is broken because you just mail them your tapes.
You can get DVDs right away of each of your tapes for $9.95 or you can use their online sotware to watch and create a customized DVD for $14.95.
Here is a link to their video transfer options page:
Check them out or give them a call. I had them convert all of my VHS, Hi8, and miniDV tapes and they did a great job. Excellent Service.
