Unfortunately, there is no cable that digitally connect your computer to an 8mm camcorder.


There are many places where a person can purchase a Sony 8mm camcorder. Stores like Best Buys, Sears, Walmart, Target, and Kmart all sell Sony 8mm camcorders.


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.


Yes, but the recording will be in a different format incompatible with US 8mm players.

Send it into a reputable camcorder service and have the capacitors changed. I have had two fixed this way.


8mm cameras are great if you are wanting to record something with a classic feel. Otherwise I would suggest VHSC for higher quality and sound.


The question here reads, can you play a Digital 8mm tape on an analog camcorder. The answer to this is NO. An analogue Video8 or Hi8 camcorder will display nothing useful if playing a tape recorded with the Digital8 standard. Only a Digital8 camcorder can play a Digital8 recording. In many cases (but certainly not all) such a Digital8 camcorder will also play analogue Video8 and Hi8 tapes. Be aware that sometimes a person will have used a tape branded as Digital8 to make recordings with a Video8 or Hi8 camcorder, and in this case the recordings ARE analogue. Another option is to convert your 8mm tapes to digital or DVDs. There are a lot of 8mm video transfer services out there that can do this for cheap. StashSpace.Com is a good one, costs $6.95 per tape and they let you watch and edit online for free. Outside USA, try a Google search for "digital8 to DVD transfers UK" or similar.


Many electronics stores offer camcorder repair. If your Sony camcorder is under warranty you can take it back to the store you purchased it from or contact Sony directly via their website at www.sony.com/

One may repair a Sony HDR HC1 camcorder via any authorized Sony repair shop. An example would be the "Precision Camera" shop which offers quality repairs for affordable prices.


it'll work if you hit it with a hammer enough times.

Yes you can. Instead of using a camcorder, you can use an 8mm video deck as an alternative. The end result is the same, the camcorder or the tape deck will both play the tape and produce a real time signal at the output. Unfortunately, there is no other means to read the information on the tape. The question implies that the tapes are safe but the camera isn't available. If that is the case, using a deck is an option: Many video rental companies have older equipment around and although there is no use for an 8mm camera these days, some may well have players to offer exactly this kind of service. Another alternative is to enquire at local video service companies. There are many who offer VHS to DVD services and there is a good chance that a local one will have 8mm facilities as well.


You need video editing software and a way to get the images into the computer. As an 8mm camcorder has only an RCA Composite output, this will require you to have a comparable input on your computer. You use the camcorder to play the tapes and input them into the computer. It will be necessary to purchase and install a composite video input card.


Hi8 should be backward-compatible with all cameras that use Video8.
