Sadly, I have to agree. I picked up a nice, home stereo 8-track player at a yard sale specifically to dub a pile of old 8-track tapes I had onto CD.
After cleaning the unit, and installing new belts I sat down and went through every tape in the pile. None of the tapes worked well enough to do anything with.
