    Re: VCR Player or Tape --- Damaged or Dirty?

    Have you tried fast forwarding and then rewinding a tape before trying a transfer? It can't hurt to loosen them up a bit if they have sat for many years without being touched.

     And they are subject to deterioration just from being in an uncontrolled environment such as humid areas or wide temperature changes. I think the estimated life span of a tape is 20-25 years, and they are deteriorating during that time too.
