Question about Sony Handycam HDR-HC3 HDV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

DVDs and backup

So I've recorded all this cool HD video, but how do I:
1. Get it onto a DVD that I can play back in HD without losing any quality.
2. Create a backup without losing quality (if not via #1)

Thanks,
Kevin

Since recordable HD DVDs are not yet commercially available, I am afraid the only way to store your HD videos is to keep them on your tape, move them onto your PC hard-drive, an use an external hard-drive. hopefully there will soon be online video storage services that support the HDV standard.

Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's


A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

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.

How do i transfer my videos from my canon dc330 into my comuter


Hey! As far as I know, Canon DC330 camcorders records high-quality MPEG-2 footage directly to a mini DVD-R or DVD-RAM. So you can watch it with your DVD-RAM drive onyour PC, or you can convert the recorded dvds into videos and play it with players such as Windows Media Player.
I'd like to share you DVD Converter Software which can help you convert dvd to common video and convert between videos. Hope that helps.

Burning videos to a dvd


This may be due to the fact that the Aiptek A-HD records to a quicktime format. There is a copy of quicktime in the disk that came with the camcorder. Now I don't know if this is quicktime Pro or not (I work on a mac, so quicktime is already installed, but the comps at my school are vista based) but if you don't have quicktime pro (you can check by right clicking on a video in quictime and if some of the options are unusable because they say "pro" next to them, you don't have quicktime PRO. It's $20 for quicktime pro, and it's very well worth the money. You can change format without losing quality, and so much more! Also WMM is not very HD compatible, you should put it in DVD format :) Hope this helped- (youtube user) animation508

CAN I SAVE MY HD TAPES TO DISC AND PLAY BACK AS HIGH DEFINITION?


At this point, unless you have a blu-ray or HD-DVD burner in your computer (and equivalent player), then you can't save HD to a DVD and have it play back in a regular DVD player. You should be able to transfer the HD video through firewire to the computer, but you might have to wait for a while until you can burn them to HD compatible DVDs. The only other option that I know of is to encode the HD video using a DivX codec (http://www.divx.com/) and just burn the file itself to the DVD, then if your DVD player can play DivX files, then you should be able to play it back on that.
