Video 8, Hi-8 and Digital-8 to DVD transfer
Video 8, Hi-8 and Digital-8 tapes were primarily used in domestic video cameras and were of reasonable quality and reliability.
But like all helical-scan videotapes (such as VHS and Betamax), Video 8 tapes archive poorly.
We have had more trouble transferring Video-8, Hi-8 and Digital-8 tapes than any other video format.
The players wear out rapidly, requiring frequent and expensive servicing, making it no longer viable to continue this service.
Consequently, CD Makers is no longer offering transfer from Video-8, Hi-8 and Digital-8.
CD Makers is still offering transfers from other video formats including VHS, Mini-DV and low-band U-matic, and still offering all the audio formats: cassette, reel-to-reel, microcassette, minicassette, Mini Disc, and DAT.
