You must have IEEE 1394 (fire wire) component on Your PC,if You haven't got You shoud buy one.
There are some IEEE 1394 cards for PCI slot and they are not expensive(there is a wire in the box).
Also you need a software like "ULEAD" or "VirtualDUB".
Good luck...

Can I hook up to the DW 100 Canon burner with my ZR200 to burn mini tapes on DVD?


No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.) USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)

What Fire Wire should I use to copy a DVD on a Philips DVD player to my Canon MD160 camcorder?


It was only after I wrote to seek your advice that after reading the instruction manual again I discovered that the Fire Wire port on my Philips DVD recorder/player is described as "DV IN only". This will account for the fact that I have been unable to make a copy of the DVD onto a mini DV in a camcorder through the fire wire. It seems that I will have to forget about copying a DVD onto a Mini-DV..

Many thanks for your quick response to my question

You need to finalize the disc before trying to play it in any other DVD Component.

Please try to copy the videos in the Camcorder to a Computer. Then, burn the videos from the Computer to a DVD disc using any burning software in the Computer. Then, try to play that DVD disc in the DVD Player.
