    If your DV camcorder has it's inputs enabled (most don't:mad: ) then you just need a 3phono to 3phono lead, put DV camcorder into VCR record mode and play back the 8mm tape on the other. Job done:)

    If your DV camcorder does not have its inputs enabled, and as I say most don't, then you will need to get a widget enabler (if still available as they could be about to be banned:mad: by camcorder manufacturers).

    Good luck
    Mark.
