I have been making short videos of my birds of prey for sometime now and we enjoy them immensely.At Christmas I was using my camera Canon MV550i
and got the dreaded REMOVE CASSITTE message.I sent it away for repair and recevied it back today,while it was away I purchased a replacement a Canon MX2 (GL2)I am over the moon with this fantastic camera.I have two questions I would like to ask the forum
1..Is there any preventative measures I can take to avoid this problem happening again with both cameras
2..Can I use my MV550i as a tape deck for rewinding my tapes,and also transfering them to my computer.Will there be any loss in quality using the MV550i for this purpose. Many thanks Paul Keith Dickinson

The cassette error thing in mho is related to forwarding and reversing the mechanism. Mine was flawless until I was running it back and forth several times, a mistake. I got it back and do not ever do that and have had no problems sense.

using the other camcorder as a player is the best idea and no problem. this has been advised many times over on this list.
