I have many different DV tapes from Sony, JVC and Pansonic and they all say " ME DVM60 Mini DV" and some of these tapes can allow long play which most of these would be recorded in.
The tape that came with the camcorder is a brand called EMTEC, Mini DV, 60ME it also says M-DVC60 and LP 90min.
7 years ago i had this model of camcorder and thats why i bought this one again, specifically so the tapes should work
i got the camcorder from ebay and the sender is from northern ireland, but it came with an american plug. It doesn't say PAL but it does say NTSC.
I probably have recorded in PAL
just to clear. i only bought the machine to play these tapes, so effectively the machine is useless and will never work as i want it.
