    Default Converting video formats

    Not sure if this the correct area to post this question, if not apologies.

    I have a load of hi8 tapes which I need to transfer to dvd, however I have no hardware to play the tapes. I have tried searching the internet but can`t really find anything I don`t want to purchase a camcorder just to play the tapes for transfer. Has anyone got any ideas or point me in the right place. Any ideas would be a great help. Thanks in advance.

    How do you plan on playing back your tapes if you don't wish to purchase a camcorder (cheap option) or playback deck (expensive option)? You need one or the other, I'm sure you can pick up a cheap second hand Hi 8 or Digital 8 camcorder on ebay and that would either allow you to connect it to a DVD recorder or using a capture card connected to a computer.
