Video 8 with hidden audio track


Novice Member
Hi there,

I have a Video 8 tape that has been edited. Titles and music have been added but I'm not able to capture or hear the music, only the wild track. My camera is only finding 1 track, even if select track 1 or 2 from the menu. Currently playing back on a Sony TRV 320E.

Is the only way to access this audio by finding a Video 8 deck or if I find the original camera (Sony CCD V200) will this give me the audio track I need?

Many thanks,

Ok, having found another thread on this forum, it looks like I need a Hi8 deck with PCM audio.
Not sure if the Sony CCD V200 has that playback option.
