Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's


A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.

8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.


You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

Playback 8mm camcorder tape fuzzy


8 mm and the newer super 8 mm video tapes are different. You can't use super 8 mm in old player. And old tapes won't play well in new super 8 mm players. Like Sony!

Playing a recording on a TV


yes you can directly play back your tape into the tv, if your camera has audio video out or an S-video out, just hooked up a connector into the tv component audio video input jack.

My camera is recording but i can't play the image back


If your selection to playback - mode to play back is selected- is correct then it is possible that the head is clogged with dirt and so the images were not recorded.
Insert an old recorded tape into the player and see if the camcorder plays. use the external video/audio output to be connect to your TV to confirm.
If so the head is clogged, have the head cleaned with a tape cleaner or very gently on the head tips on the drum taking care not to force and damage the delicate head ferrite tips.
