A vhs to dvd recorder may help you conver your vhs tapes to dvd media if you have the right system. I advise you to check with the salesperson before you buy anything.

No, the trv260 does not play back old 8mm and hi8 tapes. The original manual states that you can record on these tapes, but that you cannot playback Hi8 tapes that were previously recorded. And if it cant playback hi8 it cannot playback the earlier 8mm.

There are 3 ways to convert 8mm film to DVD here is a brilliant link which show's the pro's cons of below 1. Cheapest - Project the film against a wall and camcorder off. Then connect the camcorder to a PC. Then get the PC to burn a DVD 2. Most Expensive: Send your film to a Telecine company 3. Best send your film to a Cine to DVD transfer company

(1) VCR/VHS to DVD Conversion Service - the easiest option that involves the least hassle, but this can get expensive if you have plenty of tapes to convert.(2) Using a standalone DVD recorder - uses a DVD recorder designed to record to DVD without a computer. It will record from analog to digital sources like VCR/VHS players, older cameras, cable TV, camcorders and DVDA DVD recorder is unable to convert copyrighted films. You also have lesser flexibilities when it comes to menus, buttons and chapter settings, but it is the fastest way to convert VCR to DVD. If you can get a Firewire connection between your DVD recorder and source device then you could convert the tape to DVD at even higher quality than using analog connections.

The easiest option to convert vhs tapes to DVD is to use a video transfer service. Google: 'VHS to DVD" "VCR to DVD" or "convert vhs to dvd" and you will see lots of different options. One of the services I would recommend is StashSpace.Com it costs $6.95 per tape and you have the option to watch and edit your digitized footage online. i have alot of VHS tapes. i want to convert them 2 DVD, but cant coz of the following reasons: havent got a vhs player dont know how to do this on my own costs money will take time depending on the duration of the VHS. my VHS tapes are 3 hours long on each tape - so altogether that might take 4 hours to save it to dvd. - A LONG TIME however the good thing is DVD's lasts long, its light, can be played on pc's, dvds. and also, vhs tapes dont last long, soon theyll be obsolete. The only problem with sending your VHS tapes to a service is that random people will be watching your tapes. The best way to convery VHS to DVD is to buy a USb grabber, you can buy these anywhere, just google VHS to DVD converter. When you have the hardware, just use the software which came with your USB grabber and it will allow you transfer VHS to DVD.

I don't believe there is one machine that can do all you describe bu there are devices that can be used in conjunction with a computer. Check Hammacker Schlemer catalog. Search Slide to DVD Machine. Search online for a video capture card for the 8mm and VHS videos. Or Use a transfer service, rates have come down a lot and they will have the best equipment. I'm not sure about slides but for 8mm movies and VHS tapes check out StashSpace.Com, it's only $7 a tape and they did a great job with my stuff. You can get your content back on DVD right away or use their online editor to make personalizations.

It is quite simple to turn a VHS format tape into a digital format like a DVD. The simplest way to do this would be to purchase a VHS-to-DVD converter from a place like Best Buy to convert VHS tapes.

The easiest way to copy VHS tapes to DVD is to purchase a VHS/DVD combo. It will allow you to pop in a tape and burn it to DVD without having to download software or hook up to computer.

The Magnavox DVD VCR Player is an excellent combo choice. It features technology that makes normal DVDs look great on modern High-Definition Televisions, and takes the "fuzziness" out of VHS tapes. The player also has the ability to convert VHS tapes into DVD format, so you can say goodbye to those outdated VHS tapes! It retails for about $350, and can be purchased online or in specialized electronic stores.

Unfortunately, there are no adapters that will allow you to watch an 8MM tape on a VHS player. What you will need to look for is a camcorder that plays 8MM tapes; from there, you can easily hook up the camcorder to the television.

no need, the camcorder is that machine cam(era) (re)corder...
