Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
Have you tried using a cleaning tape? It may be the heads are dirty.
If not it may need a service, even if its unserviceable due to age they go fairly cheaply on ebay, and it may be wise to pick up a spare anyway.
But regardless with the age of digital8 and 8mm in general i would recommend backing up your tapes.
DVD recorders can now be bought very cheaply, If you buy a fairly good one (I have Liteon LVW-5006) It should have fire wire / DV link so you can transfer your pictures digitally you can then fairly easily edit your videos with something like "womble" on your PC
Don't forget to copy your disks every 5 years (or less depends how precious the films are and keep duplicates) and keep them well out of sunlight as DVD's quite often fail quite quickly, leaving one in the sun can kill it in hours.
