I have some old (about 5 years) 8mm tapes that I used to record on my old minolta 8mm camcorder. I have upgraded to mini dv as my Minolta stopped working. I am now faced with How do I transfer my 8mm tapes onto dvd. So I bought an 8mm Samsung camcorder for this purpose. However, this does not play my old tapes - no picture, no sound, nothing.
Can anyone explain how to rectify my dilemma PLEASE!!!!!
