It requires a specific software program to be able to do it.I found that out when researching about my VCR tapes to computer to DVD.Although I do not know how successful you will be with 8mm.Just search for it at various stores.Or better yet,begin by checking with your camcorder manufacturer to se if they know anything.Good luck,Greg
First take out the battery. Then start unscrewing the outside panels to take it apart. Basically any screw you find, take off. The easiest way not to loose them is by sticking them into the side of a box. After you get the camera panels off, you should be able to carefully get inside and dislodge anything that may be in the way. Once you are able to dislodge the cord or whatever is causing this problem. Try inserting the battery and ejecting the tape. Let me know if you are having any trouble with this or have any other questions and I would be glad to help.
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.
The short beep and shut off indicates that the camcorder is not loading up. it could be a faulty head cylinder motor / loading motor or the safety mechansim faulty. you will need a lot of expertise to open and check within as the job involves delicate touch. Check if the dew switch is on if so just keep the camcorder in a warm place for some time and try. If the cylinder is not rotating then it is the failure of the drive or the hall ics. check this out with a tech hand. Good day
You might have a sony handycam? If so, it is a manufacturers problem that came with the camera. Mine does this all the time, just slap the outside of it and it works. I know it sounds harsh - only do this if you have a sony handycam.
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.
