The DRV-1000 takes miniDV tape shells only, yes? Not full-size DVCAM tape shells (like the DSR-11)?

Incidentally, if you do a Google for SONY DRV-1000 , you get this thread listed first. Go Dvinfo.net.

Yes it only accepts the MiniDV tapes.
Since I got this, I have run about 80 tapes through it without any problems (knock on wood).

Thanks. The only one I can find on ebay right now is used and going for 849.00. I'll have to keep searching.

Why don't they make these kind of drives anymore? I would get one if they were actually selling for $300-$400 somewhere. I noticed in the ebay auction that took Jeff's photo, they mentioned a list price of $1700.
