Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted 10 minutes I purchased this product to watch old VHS tapes, as soon as I put the first tape into the product, something within the mechanism snapped. I had to take the whole thing back to the shop for them to remove the back and remove my precious tape. A terrible product, waste of money and potentially it could have ruined important memories

Dear Sir/Madam, I have TDK 8mm cassette tapes would it be fit to this VHS adaptor? thanks.

Asked by: Asif
Only if it is a VHS C tape. 8mm tapes cannot be adapted to play in a video recorder, they must be played in the host camcorder.

Hi just making sure this is the correct one I've got a Panasonic model NV-V29B serial number FIHC60128 is this compatible 

Asked by: mark
The model number you provided does not reveal any result when searched. Look at the tapes that you wish to use. If they bear the markings VHS-C then they will fit and work in this adaptor, if they say anything other than VHS-C, for example 8mm, Hi-8, Digital-8, Mini-DV then this unit is unsuitable.

I have a Panasonic DMR-E75VP DVD Video Recorder (creates a DVD from VHS type tapes).  I found that in my collection I have small video tapes that will require some kind of an adapter to convert to DVD.   What adapter fit my recorder?

Asked by: Howdyloudy
If the tapes are marked as VHS-C then they will fit into this adaptor ... if they are any other kind of tape they have to be played in the host recording device.
