Esteemed Archivists,

I believe this has been discussed before.

Someone on another list has some metal evaporated Hi-8 tape that sheds
so dreadfully as to be unplayable. He is expressing a desire to bake it
or cool it to make transfers.

In this case, is either baking or refrigerating a good solution?

I am thinking that it is not, but would like to have some validation on
this issue, or some suggestions as to what will help, if anything.
