    How do I copy MiniDV tape to computer, then back to a new MiniDV tape?

    Level 1
      My cousin has a MiniDV tape, the footage of which I'd like to combine with my own footage to make a movie. He lives hundreds of miles away and does not want to mail his original tape. Isn't it possible to copy the tape to his Mac computer (no editing), then put a new tape in his digital camcorder and copy the digital data back to the new tape? Then he would have two tapes with the same digital video footage, right? How can this be done? I don't think his having a Mac and me a PC matters with the digital format, so I can still use PE to capture his tape and use "Get Media" to add it to my movie project of avi clips, right? Thank you.
