    Hi all,

    Im sure its a stupid question, but is there any way of retrieving recorded over footage on a digital video camera?

    I very much doubt it!
    Most, if not all tape based systems will have an erase head that wipes the info on a tape just before the new recording is placed over the top on the tape. even without the erase head the fact that something has been copied over the top of the old recording makes it unlikely you could ever recover the old recording.
