Why can't I play my Sony DCR TRV120 recorded tapes on a Sharp Viewcam VL H870 camera?

Tapes recorded on the Sharp camera play flawlessly but tapes recored on the Sony just show snow static.


Is it possible that my tapes are just not compatible with the Sharp camera?

    They're different formats - the Sharp's Hi8, the Sony's Video8.
