    Is there any way to recover footage recorded on digital 8mm video?
    I recorded an entire 120 minute tape on a sony DCR-TRV520. I had even
    reviewed the footage. Then 5 minutes into the tape it appears to
    have been erased. I get a gray screen.

    Have you tried playing it back in a different machine ?

    As long as nothing is happening 'mechanically' to the tape path from that
    point on the tape, onwards.

    The counter continues to run. In fact the audio is still there, but a
    gray screen for video.
    Now according to you the data is still there but how do I recover it.
    Right now I am the only one Iknow witha 8mm video camera. I'm
    thinking I can sneak it into BestBuy and play it on one of their
    machines.
