Issue with MiniDV tape recorded material
I have a JVC MiniDV camcorder. I have a couple tapes where I know I recorded a full tape worth of material, but when I play it back much of it is missing. It is like I just recorded material on the 1st half of the tape and then the counter stops and it is just blue screen. I'm wondering if there was a gap from the end of one recording to the beginning of the next and that gap didn't allow the time code / counter to keep going and therefore doesn't allow me to play it back. Does anyone have experience with this? Could it be that the recorded material is really there and just can't be played back?
