Having logged lots of clips from 2 mini dv tapes I have become suspicious that about 5 or 6 of them may have been logged without having used the correct tape number. You advised to be careful about this happening. Is there a way of checking in the Browser as I know the clips in question?, OR do I delete the logging for these and relog them again?

Larry replies: Yup. Scroll to the right in the Browser and look in the Reel column.
