I've got a stack of miniDV tapes on a short loan that I'm trying to transfer\nfor editing purposes, either to other miniDVs or to the computer.\n\nHowever, they aren't playing right. I've worked out that they're playing at\napproximately .666666 of the correct speed. If I try and capture them on\ncomputer I get kind of chopped up audio (correct pitch) and the resulting\n..avi's, while no frames are dropped, won't then play at the correct speed.\nI've tried converting the avi's to mpeg with the same result.\n\nThe tapes are widescreen at (I assume) 12bit audio - the '12 bit' onscreen\nindicator flickers incessantly while the tapes play. The tapes were done in\n2003, probably using professional equipment.\n\nThe only miniDV playing facilities I have are two Canon DV cameras, slightly\ndifferent models, one is an MVX330i, both are treating these tapes the same\nway. What could the compatibility issue be here? I thought DV was DV, no\nvariation. It seems as though the cameras "think" the tapes are LP, but\nthey're not.\n\nAny help appreciated.
