Firstly Happy New Year.
I am a little distressed because I have just discovered all the DV Tapes (family memories) that I have stored in the entertainment unit seem to have been damaged.
When all the tapes are played back through my camcorder there is digital damage to the image and loss of consistent audio.
The only tape that seems to have escaped damage is the one that was inside the camcorder.
Both the stored tapes and the camera live in the same place and very close to each other.
Not sure how they have become damaged and it must have happened recently. If the damage was magnetic fields what is the the chance that all stored tapes have been damaged at the same time with the same level of problem?
