I have 40-50 Hi8 video format tapes that I want to convert to DVD's. Unfortunately, our Sony Video8 camera broke --- and I am not wanting to buy another, as we have moved to the newer mini-DVD camera. am looking for the "least expensive" way to convert these 8mm mini-cassette tapes to DVD using our iMac. On a side-note, we purchased a nice box from costco (~$300) a year or so ago which did the VHS to DVD conversion with one step. anyone know of a similar box for the Hi8 tape format?? that would be our ideal solution!
