I have a video camera that takes the small tiny vcr type tapes. Is it possible to get them onto a DVD? I would rather take them somewhere to do as I am not very computer savvy...
AND.. is it worth it to just go buy a video camera that TAKES The dvd's instead of a tape? If I do, can those tapes just be put in my home dvd player to watch??????? THANKS!

Re: Getting dvd's from the tiny video tapes?
When you bought that CAM it should came with the interface cable and software to transfer from your CAM to DVD or your computer if you lost the software you still download from that factory Web
It won.t help you if now you will buy another CAM DVD, your previous mini DV tape still need a computer to burn into the DVD format
Give me your CAM branch and model I can tell you more OK

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.
for to import from the Sony handy-cam you need a firewire cable ..not a rca..this one will only help you see the video on a tv ...but you will not be able to import them into computer ... just ask at the store..and take the camera with you .. another thing the camera may support even a usb cable that may be available in the box that it came with (infact the iLink cable should be there too ) so ..this is a link to a video I use to explain in detail the procedure to import fom minitape of sony handycam. .http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876 after have them into the windows movie maker..just drag them to the story board..(join them if you need) ..and save them by finishing movie...and save to computer ..in best for computer mode...after that just burn them to **** ..using Nero ..or if they are small enough to get into a cd ...use window feature for burning ..

I am trying to find out how I can transfer the video footage from my camcorder tapes onto my laptop to then store as DVD's. Is it possible? how can free down load driver frmo website is it also posible?
OK get a set of cord that can be used, on the back of most VCR's there is RCA Sockets for Video & Audio out... generally Red & White & Yellow these go to the corresponding inputs on the camera's Video & Audio inputs, OR Correct adapter.
The camera must have the correct A/V INPUT selected.
Then start the VCR to "Play" the tape, and set the Camera to "Record" this will/should then record the output from the VCR to the memory in the Camera.
