Does anyone have any EPK's from older movies? Back in the 90's, I believe they were all on U-Matic or Betacam. Was looking to see if anyone had any leads on them.

hello all. very nice informative site you have here. hope it's ok to post ?

I've been into analog tape for 40 years. lately I'm buying old gear just to hear it.

the Betamax and Betacam format peaked my interest. I lucked into a Betamax w/stereo processor for only $20 USD.

my next experiment will be the early Betacam, the analog machines that use oxide tape, (not the SP and later format).

I know these early Betacam machines accept the standard small analog cassette with 30 minutes play time.

my question is, will a Betacam BVW-40 also accept a 12" large cassette ??

reason being I have found a small quantity of 12" tapes I'd like to try.

if anyone has one of these machines, could you post a reply ?

or, measure the depth and width of the tape well, and advise if it's configured to accept the large tape 90min.

thank all in advance, take care

c

Error code 01 means that there is tape slack and the machine went into tape protection.

Clean the whole threading path and make sure it can complete the cycle.

Is there anyone who knows what Error code 01 means on an Ampex CVR-75 (= Sony BVW-75 )? And what to do?
