When you captured it to your computer, was it captured as a dv video ? If it was, then the avi file you have is the same as the raw video file on the tape. You can see if you can export the video to tape, then send them the 2nd copy. If you take the avi file and convert it to any other format then you will be loosing quality and it will no longer be the raw video.
And if you captured the video in another format (mpeg 4, divx, wmv, mpeg,etc) then you have already lost the quality and just converting the avi file to a dv format will not bring back the quality allready lost. You will have to re capture the video as a dv.
