Thread: Are Mini-DV tapes reusable?

    Default Are Mini-DV tapes reusable?

    Hi I was just about to buy a SONY DCR-HC51E (mini dv) camcorder and the sales rep put me off a mini dv because he told me that minidv tapes are not reusable. Is this right?

    Completely reusable. I have used miniDV tapes over and over again with no problems. The only reason you may not want to reuse one would be to keep a physical copy of the footage. Sales rep doesn't know what he's talking about. //

    How about naming and shaming the shop ?

    As Bassist says that is a lie and shops really shouldnt tell people lies.
