There is no such thing as an 8mm adapter for VHS recorders/players. 8mm tapes CANNOT be played on a VHS VCR. You need an 8mm camcorder or an 8mm VCR, the latter of which probably isn't very easy to find these days.

Adapters are for VHS-C tapes. You absolutely CANNOT play 8mm tapes on a VHS VCR. That's not a view, it's a fact. 8mm tapes are only about half the width of VHS tapes meaning they can't possibly follow the tape path which has to be very exact on a VCR. If the tape were run through a VHS it would destroy the tape and possibly the VCR heads too. Trust me, I've worked on VCRs for 20 years, you're wrong.

Nice link David.
I'm sure liarni is confusing 8mm with VHS-C.

Gotta agree with that. Now let's see them produce something that doesn't exist. That'll be really good!

Jenni - the link you provided is for a VHS-C to VHS adapter not an 8mm to VHS adapter - you will not find an 8mm to VHS Adapter.

I have done this before but it is tedious and time consuming. There is a special mini screen you can use that reverses the image. You need to use an 8 mm projector and a camcorder. You set up the 8mm projector to play into the mini screen and the camcorder records what comes out on the other side. You can either record to the camcorder tape or if you have the right connectors, you can capture the video right on your computer. I went this route with some movies my father in law had and it worked quite well.
