If you bulk erase the tape you will erase the formatting. John
My mini-DV camcorder (Canon ZR100) has a wonderful "end search" feature, which automatically finds the end of the last recording, i.e. the starting point for the next shot. However, this feature can obviously only work with "virgin" tapes, not previously recorded tapes.
Does anybody know how to erase used tapes to "virgin" state? Can magnetic tape erasers be used?
