Transfer a movie from 8mm to a DVD from a Sharp Camcorder

I have a older Sharp Slimcam 8mm Camcorder #VL-SE10U that I have 10 cassette movies I need to transfer to DVD, but in the users/operation manual it doesn't say/read how to transfer from the 8mm cassettes to "anything" or shows some kind of transfer cables from there Supplied Accessories or even there Optional Accessories pages. Does anybody out there know how to get my job of transferring from 8mm to DVD's done.
I also have a newer Sony Camcorder that has the same 8mm cassettes but they are Hi8MP Digital 8 video cassettes and it hooked up to this Sony Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder# RDR-VX525 with a Fire Wire and transferring was successful. HELP!

You need a DVD recorder that accepts the old analog video from the camcorder. These are getting rare and expensive but hey, let's check Amazon.

It appears new ones are close to 900 dollars.

Let's say you want INSTRUCTIONS.

First you'll need something to record to DVD. The Sony manual states how to connect the old ANALOG INPUTS and then more about page 47. Since the manual covered this use I took this to mean this product didn't work any longer and you needed a new recording method.

Sony Manual is at https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/3096/30964871M.pdf

For the old analog system (camcorder) you connect up the video and audio RCA outputs from the camcorder to your DVD recorder per the manuals.

Operation appears to be in the product manuals so if you are stuck, tell where.

Final update fokes

In reply to: Let's say you want INSTRUCTIONS.

Up Date**** My claims were ""FACTUAL"" about transferring from my "newer" camcorder to that Sony Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder # blah blah blah. With the newer Camcorder it has a Fire Wire connection so its pretty much an automatic deal like plug n play but with my older camcorder as some one put it so eloquently "the old analog system" this one Doesn't have a Fire Wire connection its uses an old school "Y" connectors. So it has to start kinda in a manual push play and push record buttons type of deal, and that is what I finally did to get them both one (antiquated) analog camcorder and the Sony Cassette DVD/ Recorder#'s blah blah blah blah.
