Lost Video Help!

I've got a problem: Using a Canon ELURA 100 miniDV camcorder, I recorded in-car footage from a race this past weekend, and got some pretty good stuff - seven miniDV tapes worth (it was an endurance race). I started reviewing all the footage and the last tape of the day won't play footage that I know was recorded.

I know that the video recorded correctly, because we reviewed it at the track in-camera and saw nearly 90 minutes of footage. But now when I try to play back what should be an entire tape full of content, there's only about 01:30:00 worth of footage before the camera appears to lose sync (am I using the right term here?). The 0h00m00s00f counter goes blank about 0h01m30s into it, and no frame counts pick up anywhere else along the tape.

Has anyone ever experienced this? Knowing that there's footage there (I saw it during the first playback!), is there some way to get it to play?

I've tried playback in both the Canon ELURA 100 it was recorded on as well as a Panasonic PV-GS300 camcorder with the same result - the sync drops out at the same spot.

FYI - It was really HOT (95deg) and HUMID when the tape was recorded and then previewed successfully. When reviewed later, it was in the comfort of A/C...

Help!

Did you record in LP mode?

Yes. If all went well, we would have had about 14 hours of video footage to capture, and only a few tapes to do it on...

Is that crucial to my recovery options?

Thx,
Craig
