I'm trying to convert my 8mm videos to digital so I can edit and store on DVD's. Unfortunately both of my 8mm video cameras no longer work. In playback, there is no audio signal and the video is poor. Are there any consumer level playback devices available to play these 8mm tapes so that I can import them into my PC? If so, what brand/price should I be looking for? I'd prefer to not have to buy another 8mm video camera just to play these tapes. Thanks.
