Can anyone else shed light onto the problem I have with transferring home camcorder tapes onto VHS. I am using a fairly new (well unused) Hitachi camcorder to play tapes from the 90's which were done on a Sanyo Camcorder.
At certain points on some of the tapes they go into 'fast forward' mode. You can see and hear what is going on, only very fast, like it's been taped in 'long play' and I am trying to play it on 'Single Play'? It's very strange. The tapes seem in very good condition and I only ever used them once.

Re: Transferring camcorder tapes to VHS
It depends on what speed these tapes were first recorded on. Maybe the camcorder your trying to use to play them back do not support this tape speed I have seen this in the past. Are these 8-MM or VHS-C tapes.. Also the tapes that were recored, maybe tyhere was something wrong with the tape path and was slightly out of alighnment. I had once a Sony 8-MM camcorder and tapes a lot of stuff and then gave them to someone to watch and they would not play. I tryed the tapes again in my camcorder and they worked great. I got a test tape and tryed it in my camcorder and it turned out the tape path alighnment was off, so i had to rerecord everything I had from one camcorder to DVD so i could fix my camcorder. Good Luck

I can only offer you 1 option for this case.
In converting the VHS video tape to DVD you can use computer. All you need to have is the VHS player with RCA audio video cables. Then a computer that has video capture card or USB capture card. This will take time but you can just transfer all the copyrighted videos to DVD and to computer data (post to internet)
*Needs realtime transfer VHS to Computer with the prefered resolution option.
*Burn to DVD, it will depends on your DVD drive speed.
I am trying to find out how I can transfer the video footage from my camcorder tapes onto my laptop to then store as DVD's. Is it possible? how can free down load driver frmo website is it also posible?
Yes, and it is highly recommended to do so. Hitachi’s DVD-Camcorder has an advanced analogto-digital conversion system. By using the analog Audio/Video input on the camcorder, the tape based information is converted into digital data and is then recorded onto the DVD disc. See manual instructions for switching input from Camera to Line-In.
