I’ve been given an 8mm tape that my sister-in-law wants me to burn to a DVD. No problem, I’ve a camcorder that can play-back an 8mm tape and can hook-up to my DVD player/recorder.
To test my connection, I used one of my tapes; picture displayed on TV no problem. However, upon playing the tape given me, nothing displays, even after fast-forwarding thru the entire tape. She assures me see watched part of the tape so there was something on it.
The tape was mailed to me; she’s sure she put the correct tape in the mail.
I inquried about what type camcorder she recorded with; it was a digial Sony Handycam. I played her tape on a 13-year old GE analog camcorder.
Question: Is this the problem? Can my old camcorder not play this digital format?
Thanks in advance for any and all guidance on this.
