Hi all Just found this forum and looks a good source of information... so heres my question. I have a lot of mini DV tapes and i need to make a back up copy of each tape for myself. I know i can import the footage from the originals into Premiere and then export them back onto a fresh DV tape but that is too time consuming as i need to return the tapes soon. Is there a machine similar to a "double cassete tape deck (remember those!) which would do the job? Copying to VHS would loose to much quality and my hard disks are full with AVIs at present. Would buying another camcorder work if i linked the 2 together to copy the tapes?
