You cannot transfer 8mm video tapes to DVD without a hi8 camcorder. If you have the camcorder you can use certain soft wares available in computer hardware/software stores. These soft wares enable you to dump or transfer the footage on the tape to your computer and further allow you burn it on a DVD. An easier, yet a little more expensive, way to go bout transferring your VHS tapes to DVD is to take your tapes to a video duplicator in your area and have them transferred on to a DVD professionally. If you do not know of any such place, you can always check up online for several service providers who can pick up your tapes from home, transfer them, and deliver the DVD to your home.
One way to copy 8mm movies is to first play them on projector and then record them in real time through a camcorder.Then just copy them on to the pc and convert them to dvd format and burn dvd.If you want to save time then a digital 8 camcorder.

What if the video camera used to make 8mm tapes no longer works? Can it still be used to transfer info to DVD/computer for manipulation?
I believe the most Sony computers have a audio/video inputs that will allow you capture the video from your camera. The camera might also have a USB output. With a USB connection quality would be better than with A/V. Once you have captured the video you can edit it and burn it to a DVD in windows movie maker.
