Not available - the tapes are different widths for a start, and the two formats use different compression techniques. Adapters are available for VHS-C to VHS because the tape width and the recording format are the same.

When I play mini dv it says insert head cleaning cassette should i insert one, what brand do you recommend?

that is a sony thing....you must insert and run the cleaning tape for 10 seconds before any other feature will work...no cleaning tape, no operation of the device. my deck and sony cameras all do the same thing.

internal misalignment causes the tape to mount incorrectly, grabbing and eating the tape. must find a repair facility to realign. do not attempt yourself as the internal mechanisms are so delicate it is easy to cause another problem

SO you actually got the S/VHS to capture via firewire into your computer? I can only get the DV side to work. I have the same unit with manual. I think your initial problem is a refresh rate, are you using Premiere? and can you make the viewing window smaller?

JVC HR-DVS3 Mini DV/S-VHS VCR time code problem

time code problems may be the result of tape path alignment, but since you have the same problem with five decks, don't overlook the possibility that the tapes themselves may have defective or non-existent time code. check to make sure the device that recorded the time code isn't malfunctioning.

Adapter question

There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.

Jvc 200u problem recording to vhs video tape, from camcorder

Yes, if the camera is a US camera then it is NTSC. That would be your problem, you are trying to record an NTSC signal to a PAL video. THe frame rates and resolutions are all wrong. I am even surprised that it is playing back on your TV okay...
