I've got a TON of old hi-8 tapes that I'd like to digitize. I've got a new ElGato Video Capture that worked great for some old vhs-c tapes. I "thought" I did good research and bought a used Sony CCD-TRV108 to import my tapes. The camcorder came with a tape in it (from the previous owner) and it plays that tape just fine. But when I put any of my tapes into it, I just get static and noise. Ideas?? I'm not keen to send my tapes out as I have already invested a bit so I could do it myself, but I'm baffled as to why the camcorder won't play my hi-8 tapes, but played it's own...does Sony use a proprietary format??? Thanks for ANY help!
