Play back pre recorded HI8 tapes on my TRV130?


The Sony DCR-TRV130 is a D8 digital camcorder which is not compatible with Hi8 camcorders.
You need to have an Hi8 camcorder or DCR-TRV103 or similar camcorders that backward compatible with Hi8 camcorders.

Try removing the battery and charging it. Then put the battery back on the camera. This will reset the cassette system. The cassette should open or close depending upon what status it is in. Once you get the camera to eject fully, clean your heads with a dry head cleaner cassette for Hi8 video. If your camera is still eating tape, could be a broken pin or damaged heads.

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Hi8 to dvd


Greetings ocean view,

My suggestion would be to find a retailer who transfers video tape to dvd. They use an actual machine to do this and it should recognize your tape. This might solve your problem.

I hope this helps!
Sincerely,

Dorothy

Can't use my Sony TRV22 miniDV camcorder to pass through and record Hi8 analog signal to my PC


Just below, they noted you don't put a tape in the TRV... Otherwise it outsmarts you.
