      I have a box of my old mini DV tapes with the gold contacts on them
      I remember reading that the dat and time would be recorded on those contacts.
      Fastforward to 2019. I found a Souny GV-D900 and will be digitizing my tapes through Premiere CS5 on my Win 10 PC.
      My question is how to I recover/find/display the date/datecode?
      Any help would be appreciated.

      As far as I know, all data — video, audio and metadata — is stored on the miniDV tape. The “gold contacts” are just that: contacts.

      Some decks, the Sony DHR-1000 for example, are able to display the metadata. This includes date and time as well as various camera settings.
