    Hello

    I own a Sony video camera that takes 8mm film. The camera recently died, but it lived a long life, so I didn't mourn too much.
    But now I have all of these 8mm tapes and nothing to play them with. I'd like to convert them to DVD, I have a computer with video software and DVD burner, no problem, but does any one have any suggestions how I can get the tapes to play so I can record them? Thanks in advance

    There were three 8mm formats

    video8
    Hi8
    Digital8

    Buy a used camcorder on ebay or craigslist + a capture card + capture/DVD authoring software

    or pay someone to do it.
