The videohead of my V2000 is defective, so if you want to convert your old V2000 tapes, I will do it if you send me a working unit or at least a working videohead. I think this is a good interchange contact me if you're interested or want to shell one really cheap! I'm in Spain.

V2000 is the best because of its automatic tracking. Recordings of more then 15 years old are still stable. Pay attention to dust and filth on the capstan and remove it. Especially at the edges of the tape on the capstan. Every mechanical machine wil suffer on that after long usage and even a VCR2000.
