Summary: I have not even recorded 4 full tapes and am already having problems. On Thanksgiving I got the camera out and started recording. About 2 minutes into recording I got a message telling me to reinsert the tape. I did just that but still got the same message. I tried 4 new tapes but it still didn't work. After about a half an hour of trying to figure out what was wrong I got a whole new message telling me the head was dirty and needed cleaned.
