Using my son's Sony analog videocam earlier this year I filmed an event. Then I connected the videocam to my VCR recorder and made a standard VHS size copy of what I filmed.
But this month (June) I tried to copy the same 8 mm tape to which I had added some stuff. I tried it with 2 different VHS recorders. It would not copy. Then my son tried copying it with no more success than I had.
Now, if the videocam input is connected to a TV input, it plays just fine--both for me and my son.
So the data on the tape is intact...and viewable.
How can I make more copies of the tape to a standard size VHS video tape?
