Question dv tape dropped in water!

I dropped a dv tape in water (very briefly) that some of my students had just shot some important footage on. The tape seems fine but won't rewind passed a certain point, the tape stops and indicates I should eject it. Can I save it? My students are going to be very upset if I can't!

Once I had a similar accident with 2 tapes (which got actually quite well soaked in water). As i thought they were probably spoiled anyway I tried the following: I put them in a food dehydrator for over night, with cover open and very low temperature. Before playing them I winded tapes twice through the whole tape (without the image). Surprisingly the both tapes worked perfectly. of course there is a risk of getting dirt or moisture in your player/camcorder, but you seem to have tested that anyway already.
