Print To Tape Help.

Can someone enlighten me as to the ideal settings or something to turn on or off when sending an avi out to miniDV? I am trying to print a 1 hour and 40 min avi out to an 80 min DV tape in LP mode. Yeah I know,...80 min tapes...LP mode...recipe for disaster. But it shouldn't be. And its not an entire failure either, but I will get 1 or 2 hiccups on the transfer and the rest is flawless. I need an absolutely clean print. Any suggestions.
BTW...Running 7 on a P4 3.6 with 2 gig ram.

Recipe for disaster is right :-(
First of all, 80 min. tapes are very thin.
Secondly, you're running that tape in LP mode so the potential for dropouts is huge.
Find a way to split it into 2 sections and do print that to 2 60 min. tapes.
If it has to be that length, rent or find someone who has a deck that supports the full-size miniDV tapes.
They're available up to 276 min. long.
