The reels do turn on my tapes when I use a popsicle or such stick to tighten it back up. But I fear this tape is only good for the trash.
I have an older Sony Handycam Video 8 camcorder. The camcorder works fine, so I am about to find out.
I removed a cassette tape from camcorder (been in there awhile) and the tape was very loose about 5" but not damaged or twisted. How do I tighten the tape in the cassette before re inserting the tape back into the camcorder? I can easily do a VHS tape but can't figure the video 8 tape out. Any help would be appreciated!
