I have video footage of my honeymoon trip from 5 years ago that I have never seen to this day. A family member had let me borrow their Sony camcorder, which used Hi8 tapes, but I have no way to play the tape back without the camcorder itself. With all the changes in technology, I was wondering if there was a way to be able to transfer the video from the Hi8 tape to either DVD or computer...but without having to use a camcorder. I don't have the original camcorder, and don't want to spend money on buying a camcorder just to make this one transfer. I have a DVD burner, and several different encoding/decoding/compression/ripping type programs on my PC, so if I could get it to my PC, that would probably be fine as well. Is it possible, or am I S.O.L.???!!!
