The seller of the Mustang rewinder got right back to me and offered a full refund. I am sending her a Beta tape [she asked for] so she can check the rest of them. She seems eager to resolve the issue. harrym

I got the Mustang rewinder today, but it won't work. It will turn slowly without a cassette in it, but it won't wind a cassette. I have contacted the seller, but there hasn't been time for her to get back to me yet. harrym

There is/was a card that you could get that would convert compy signals to video line-in so you could disgorge the contents of your hard drive to a VCR. Sorta like those old-timey computers that run off a cassette recorder...

I know that videotape recorders can be used to back up computers, but I do not know the details of the process.

To:Harry try replace the rubber belt ;surely it'll works fine....If you like the Fast foward function in KINYO, disassemble the rotor of the motor and turn it upside down then adjust the core.(this is very difficult)Alternatively you can find a Direct Current motor with a transformer of course.Happy hunting.......

Can anyone tell me if the Sony BE-V50 rewinder will wind in both directions? harrym

Too late! I already ordered one. It looks sort of like the Kinyo model I am using, which no longer ejects the cassettes but otherwise works. I wanted the two-way feature, since I like to fast forward to the end of the tape when recycling/erasing tapes. What is the problem with this machine? harrym

OMG! Now there's a huge laugh!! "Smokies confiscate truckload of boxed beta videocasette rewinders believing there to be contraband items inside the boxes!" "'Well, we had to check,' says one officer as he munches on a jelly donut. 'Who would buy a truckload of beta rewinders?!!'"

So now if it had been, say, a rig full of HF750's, would all the "snails-in-blue" come out of the woodwork and snag 'em all before anyone could sell 'em??? ;)

All I can say is "What the #~(#, over?" siezed by law enforcement??? Truck of beta rewinders? Why is it always rewinders, or other stuff like that... why no truckload of SL-HF-900s? Wharehouse of SL-HF-870Ds? Cargo-Ship container of SL-HF-1000s? rotten rewinders... oh well..

_@_╝╝ - you suppose this is one of those 'lemonade' betas?

http://www.telusplanet.net/public/rouben/beta%20sanyo

Sanyo called their Betas "Betacords"...

Didn't Sears have use of the "Betavision" moniker? Perhaps Sanyo got stuck with a lot of returns when Sears quit selling Betas?

_@_╝╝ - you see why so many are on offer?

"Condition: This is brand new and in the box. We received a great deal on these as they were on a truck that was seized by law enforcement. Each box has been opened to ensure there was no contraband inside."

that 'war on terror' will leave no Beta rewinder unturned. I wonder if they thought there was something suspicious about a truckload of Beta rewinders? "Hey wait a minute! Who buys Beta rewinders anymore?"

Oh, yeah, that one... The 2400-series machiens and so on had those... I've got one but I hated the cord and took it off... now I can't find it.

I didn't mean to say that my remote was corded. What I meant was that it has a little loop of black string, kinda like one from a cheap 35mm camera that can go around your wrist.
