I'm in the process of dumping my Mini-DV tapes onto HD, and won't need the tapes any more.
I'll have about 30-40 that have been runthrough a camera maybe 3-4 times.
They'd still have wahtever I recorded on them but, of course, could be erased and reused.
If people want to use whatever they discover on a tape, they'd be free to do that.
So: Are these tapes useful to you?
If so, where do I send them?
I wasn't sure at the bottom of your email you meant "don't contact me at "this" Frameworks address or don't contact me at "this" email suppressed,
so here goes.
