Sony HC40 - Burn DVD w/o Sony PC

I just purchased a Sony HC40, however, I just recently discovered that (according to the manual) you need a Sony Vaio PC to burn a dvd. I have a DVD Burner and DVD Software on my HP Pavilion. I don't want to make VCD's. And I don't want to purchase a new computer. Is there any software, or any way, for me to burn my videos from the camera to a DVD on my computer? Please help.

My combination is: HP Pavilion zt3000 (Centrino 1.6 Ghz, 80 GB HDD) + Sony HC30 + Roxio 7. Roxio works very well. No lost frames. Final DVD outputs are very good. Have tried/used WinDVD creator 2, but the DVD quality was inferior to Roxio. Didn't try other software. There are plenty of them on the market.

Don't worry about the manual. You just need to get a firewire cable (since you have a laptop, you probably need a 4 pin to 4 pin cable, but check the port in your laptop to make sure it is a 4 pin. If the port size is the same as it is in your camcorder, you need a 4pin to 4pin cable). For transferring video to your laptop and burning DVD, use the software which came with your DVD burner. If you do not have one, try Dazzle software, it works well.

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!


Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
