Summary: Bought in 2002, great camera until two weeks ago. When I rewind the dispay on LCD reads Eject Tape, I remove and re-insert until I get rewinded. I see from reading about this camera that this is a common problem. Just wait..
All was well until the "safety mechanism" went berserk.

Summary: This is not a high-end camera, but was good enough for me. I have recorded 12 tapes on it. Beginning with tapes 11 and 12 a problem has developed with rewinding the cartridge. After about 1 minute (recording time) worth of rewinding, it stops and displays "Remove Cartridge" on the screen.
Update to my previous review regarding motor noise.

Summary: The high pitched motor noise is present in recordings, not only in very quiet situations (as my prvious review indicated, based on CanonDV site), but is also present when the camera is placed in front of speakers playing music.
