My digital 8 tapes from the 1990's still play back fine, and even if there were a bad spot you could simply wind through it. My 8cm camcorder DVD'S seem to be much more problematic. Like all DVD'S they just seem to shut down completely if there is a disc fault anywhere on the disc. So yes I believe the statement, made on the other thread, that video tape will outlast DVD.

The best of all worlds- 8mm, super 8mm, 9.5mm, and HD Digital Projection,
