In transferring video tapes to computer, standard 8mm works

Customer Question

In transferring video tapes to computer, standard 8mm works fine, but when I try to convert Hi8 tapes the sound track disappears. The camcorder I'm using is a Samsung VP-W95D (PAL)

Hi there,
When transferring Hi8 tapes to the computer, you will need to have an audio cable connected from the camera to the computer, as well as a video cable.
