I don’t know if this helps, but I have a Panasonic PV-GS39, and I taped some footage at school on a Canon XL2. The video played back fine on the Panasonic but the audio skipped, made loud electronic noises and was unusable. I had to transfer the footage at school from the Canon to a computer, then burn the 3 gigs of footage on the Mac’s 1X DVD burner. So keep DV tapes with the camera you use and don’t use them with different brands.
