Are the following sentences have the same meaning?
///do you mind if i borrow your digital camera
///would you mind if i borrowed your digital camera
Because the first sentence has the verb borrow while the second sentence has the verb borrowed.
Re: Meaning ...
The have the same meaning, but the second is more formal- we use 'would' to try to show a greater degree of formality. The reason for the differene in tenses is to be found at the start of the question- do you mind + present, would you mind + past
