Helo there!

I don't know if this forum is the proper one for this question.

Is there any portable device that can play old video tapes like HI8, MiniDV into a TV set or PC, and even record them?

I've got a lot of them, and the camcorders as well, and the work, but is a pain in the neck to change to the proper camcorder every time I want to see "old times" memories, load batteries, look the part of the tape and so on.

Old my camcorders are SONY.

Than you for your help.

There used to be, and I can't even recall the name, but vhs sized cartridges that you put the mini Hi8 tapes in, to play them in VHS VCRs. If you can locate one, you could use a DVD recorder -where a topic like this might better fit, and record those Hi8s to blank DVDs.
Or record to a PC hard drive using a video capture device.
