Smartjanivj,

This depends on what kind of CD you wish to make. If you simply wish to put the videos on the CD as data to be viewed later on another computer, you can transfer the video into windows movie maker (most PC's come with this free program) with File > Import video from Digital Video Camera, and then your movie can be saved via File > Publish Movie. Select "This Computer" and click Next. Select a name for your movie and the directory in which you want to save the file and click Next. Then adjust any final settings and click Publish. Then you can burn that file onto a CD.

However if you wish to make a DVD, follow the same steps as above but instead of selecting "This Computer", select "DVD". NOTE This step only works if you also have Windows DVD Maker installed.

Both Windows Movie Maker and Windows DVD maker can be downloaded for free off the internet, if they are not already on your computer.

Hope this helps :)

Did your camera come with a USB or some type of cable to connect to your computer? If so, I would imagine you could download the files to your computer and burn a cd. Good luck, hope this helped.

UNPLAYABLE MP3


Windows media or Itunes can rip a CD for you and convert them into MP3 files. Then you can put in a blank CD in the computer and copy the MP3 files into the CD and burn them that way.

It requires to put the CD into a data format to burn them rather than a music CD format.

Unplug the US cable. There is a computer Application guide that came with your camera. You need to load the software and set up the application and then plug in the camera USB cable. The application guide is not complicated.

GR-D60EK importing data from camera to computer


You need a cable. If your camcorder has a DV port you need a firewire port in the back of your computer as well as a firewire cable. If your computer has a USB port you need a USB cable.

You also need video capturing software to use it. Pinnacle Systems makes an easy to use system that work with your camcorder. Once the software is installed, the cable is plugged in and the camera is turned on, your computer will lauch Studio for you.
