You should be able to hook up through usb or firewire. If your computer has a firewire port on it you can but a firewire cable that works with your camera and then use windows movie maker to capture the video footage. You can then burn it to a dvd.

The USB drive for Sony CAM you can download from Sony web but the USB will not allow you to transfer video from your CAM only for memory stick
