|I know they have the adapter to play (I think they're called) VHS-C cassettes in regular VCR players but I couldn't find anything like that for DVC cassettes. I think that's because a VCR records an analog signal and your camera records as digital. So it's not just a matter of fitting the DVC tape in something that fits a VCR; you have to actually convert what's on the DVC tape too.|
All I could find was directions on how to connect the camera to a VCR and play the DVC tape from the camera and record it on a VCR. Of course that wouldn't work for you if your camera is having the problem.
You may be able to take the tapes to a camera shop and have them convert them but since you're probably going to need a new camera anyway it mght be best to buy one that uses the same tapes and connect it to a VCR or DVD recorder.
