MiniDV failure Rate
Is the failure rate of miniDV tapes high. I recently recorded footage, the camcorder timecode carried on upto around 46 mins. Then I come to playback the tape and it has nothing on it, apart from every few minutes of fast forwarding, the timecode flashes up, with the date and time of the recording. Physically looking at the tape there are very fine creases, but nothing major. Other than that the tape is fine, but where is the footage? Is there are way of recovery, or is this a fault of the camcorder, which went onto record more footage on a different tape?
