"I never stripe my tapes. The only time I have problems is when I am not cautious about starting my camcorder over a valid t/c."

Hi Nathan.

What do you mean by valid t/c? As far as I know an out of the box blank tape does'nt have t/c. Please explain in more detail as I would very much like no to have to stripe my tapes.

Best regards
Arnaldo

Put your lens cap on and tape from beginning to end of tape. This is unnecessary and cuts the life of camera in half. This topic has been covered (striping) and if you do a search, you'll find several discussions on this topic.

Arnaldo,
I think Jeff is right that you should try search and read what has already been written about 'striping.' Then if you have some questions (you might) start up a thread about it. This thread is about MQ versus PQ tapes. Out of good form we like to keep posts relevant to the subject.

Do feel free to start a striping post, though.

I heard from somewhere that normal/cheap Panny tapes use wet lubricant and master tapes use dry lubricant.

dvfreak.com claims that Fuji tape is the best.

tapestockonlines.com, ecost.com, and cheapbatteries.com are places to get cheap mini-DV tape. Never bought from any of these so I don't know how good these stores are. (well my school did buy from tapestockonline.com but I didn't know how the order went). try resellerratings.com
