Hi I have some 8mm tapes that are 20+ years old and I am converting them to digital now. I got most of them done and was able to match the frame rate and size. But I ran in to a problem with a couple tapes. When I play them throw my system they play the pic. but no audio but if I fast forward I can here the audio. All cable are connect and this dose not affect all the tapes just a hand full of them. I screw around with it for a while.
For now I have move on to working on the other tapes but I really like to be able to save the videos on them they hold family memories I just try to get ideas before I screw them up I never came cross this before
A am using a 8mm camcorder connect to my JVC - DV/VHS deck fire wire to my computer and editing with final cut pro.
