    There is no reason why you can't copy them all to DVD yourself as long as you have or get the correct hardware.

    8mm video tapes are analogue and therefore cannot be captured via firewire as you would for DV. You need to get an analogue capture card or converter. These range from the cheap and not so good USB devices costing around £30, all the way up to the best analogue to DV converters such as the Canopus ADVC converters costing from around £100 up (depending on features).
    Once captured on the PC with one of the above you just edit and then burn to DVD as you would any files captured froma DV camcorder.
