Ok my first big problem is that I have very important footage on a mini DV tape and want to back it up onto a second tape and am not sure how to go about it. I'm sure there must be a simple way but i don't know what it is. I have a firewire card in a PC with a nice big hard drive and Ulead Video Studio 5. So i guess i could use that but was hoping to find a way that would create a perfect bit for bit copy. Any ideas?
The second problem is that i'm trying to do a batch capture with Ulead Video Studio and it won't recognise the timecodes. It enters them fine but when i push the button to start the batch capture it just fastforwards the tape to the end and then crashes. The tape i am trying to batch capture from was filmed on a different camera than the one i am trying to capture from (it was filmed on a hired camera so i don't have access to that camera anymore) and all footage recorded on my camera batch captures off my camera properly. So i'm thinking it could be an issue of changing cameras...
Has anyone else had this problem with Ulead Video Studio?
Cheers for any help anyone can give me.
