No, I don't retension my tapes, but I should. I also should have kept the original reel to reel audio tapes I transferred to CD years ago for archiving. Long-term stacking on a spindle (I'm guessing) caused the substrate to separate on most of them and hundreds of hours of material was forever lost to the ages.

Ain't no magic bullets here. At least we don't have to deal with the disintegration of ancient film stock.

I really wish rotating magnetic (hard disk) storage would work for archiving. Price is right and the format/interface is liable to be around for a long while.

I have now fully and completely hijacked this thread. Sorry.

Hi Brian,

The HMC150 does not have a firewire output. It does have HDMI and Composite. The nNovia drive can accept composite, so it could be used as a backup for legal depositions, but I wouldn't recommend composite in a scenario where quality matters. I don't know if the Firestore unit can accept composite.
