Jeff.
Thanks for the advice..blacking tape seems unnecessary..I simply wonder now how best to store source footage. Travelling over borders and through securities makes it difficult to know what kinds of magnetics et al the tape is subjected to..so what to do? I remember in the film days there were "safebags" for travel..is there such a thing for tape?

Wild in Roma,

The current condition of the tapes has more to do with temperature and humidity than exposure to magnetic objects. Handling also plays a part and past use of the tapes may have resulted in uneven tension and stretching. Keep the tapes rewound and minimize viewing of the tapes to the absolute essential.
