Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had 3 of these recently from my local store and all of them suffered with tapes sticking within them. They were not reliable so I had to return them in the end

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product It's great that you can still get hold of these as I have a lot of old family footage on VHS C cassettes which I have been unable to view and convert.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from could not use I bought this thinking it was suitable for all camcorder tapes, but it's only good for Panasonic which was not clear when advertised. Could not use due to this, as we have a sharp.

Will 8mm cassette tapes fit this unit

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.

The battery operated adapter I want to replace has ared bit of red plastic at the side which goes in when the adapter cover is shut and the tape is picked up. Am I getting the right replacement from you?

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.
