    My parents have a bunch of old 8mm tapes that were used with an old camcorder that recently took a swim in a pool. Are there any "vcr" type devices out there that can hooked right up to a tv to view the tapes, or do I need to get them transferred over somehow?

    there are old 8mm players, yeah - might be better off paying someone to convert the tapes to dvd though; is pretty reasonable and there's usually someone in every town that does it.
