Question about Canon DW 100 DVD-RW Burner
My manual for the HG-20 says to use the DW-100 DVD burner. However when I look at the info on the DW-100 it dones not list the HG20
I recently purchased the DW-100 for my HG-20. Works like a charm.
Some quick gotchas though...
People complain that Canon was not 100% clear about it's use. You can only burn standard definition (i.e. "non" hi def) DVDs if that's how the camera recorded it... I never looked to see if my HG-20 is capable of the old stuff, but basically the camera is sending data to the burner and there's no real conversion going on. Some Canon models record in Standard Def others do not.
Personally, I use the burner to backup videos onto standard DVD-R (or DVD-R DL) discs. The discs are burned in a Blu-ray compatible format. (but you get 4.7 or 8GB onto a disc vs the 30GB you'd get on a Blu-ray disc - but don't complain b/c the Blu-ray discs cost a fortune.)
If you don't own a Blu-Ray player you can connect the USB b/w the "camera & burner", and then the HDMI b/w the "camera & TV" and send the video from the burner, thru the camera, and watch on a Hi Def TV. (Complex but it does work and the picture quality is great).
Hop this helps.
