    Hi

    Could someone please confirm if this is possible or not.

    I am trying to find out if camcorder tapes that have been recorded elsewhere (i.e. another persons camcorder) will work in other camcorders of the same format.

    In other words if I tape something on VHS format on my VCR - and take that tape and play it on a friends VCR it will work.

    Does the same apply to camcorders and miniDV's?

    i.e. 8mm - will it play on ANY 8mm camcorder?
    Hi8 - will it play on ANY Hi8 camcorder?
    miniDV's - will it play on ANY DV camcorder?

    Thank you in advance - regards, Stephen

    Yes...any Hi8 should Play in any Hi8 Player and any MiniDV tape should Play in any MiniDV Player/Camcorder..

    And of course any VHS tape should Play in any VCR...
