Transferring Recording to DVD

I would like to transfer what I have recorded on the mini DV tape to a DVD as a family member would like a copy of what has been recorded. Is this possible and what cables etc do I need to buy.

U need a firewire cable, and ofecourse the computer must have such a port ( IEEE 1394 ), if not buy one it;s not much...

as software u can use any video capturing software. But i recomand the Panasonic one(should be on the CD's that came with the camera).

    So the computer doesn;t recognise the camera? Or just the windows movie maker ?



    If the first ....

    - make sure the cable makes proper contact

    - the camera is on (and powerd by cable not by battery)

    - the camera is in VCR mode

    - also try to go on windows device manager ....and make it search for new hardware devices ...



    If the second .... use another software ... there are plenty of free and good ones . Don;t know to give u any examples for windows becouse i use linux ....

I AM UNABLE TO COPY VIDEOS FROM TAPE TO PC


Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE cable.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.



Thank you for using FixYa!

Can you please tell me why when i try to import vidoes using picture motion browsing i am getting the message Cannot find source media for importing,


You might be connecting the Camcorder using USB interface. Picture Motion Browser Cannot be used for transferring videos from tape camcorder (mini DV in your case) using USB interface..

Operating System also matters..

If you're using XP OS, you can install the driver from supplied CD and use Windows Movie Maker to transfer the recordings using USB interface.

Vista, Windows 7 - You need to use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer the recording. When using i.LINK with Vista, you can use the Picture Motion Browser software.

I think this will definitely help you to connect the Camcorder..

DVD to mini DV tranfer


Only way is Play burned DVD in dvd player and provide Audio- Video out (yellow-red-white) to mini DV camera that has AV Line Input recording facility. Or find any Mini DV recorder and record tape.
In that way you can record video again on Mini DV tape.

Transfering from a hard drive camcorder to a mini dv


Yes. Using a DV or firewire cable and the right software you can record to DV tape. I know Pinnacle Studio software is capable of doing this and will even control the recording of the taping as well through the sofware.

Books have been written on this subject. The easy answer is go to a reputable camera store rather than an electronics store, tell them what you want to do with your camera and they will suggest models that suit you. All camcorders are now digital but some record on tape, some on a hard drive or DVD and some on memory cards. Those using tape don't have to compress the image so much and give better pictures. Normal digital video is quite good enough for an amateur, but high definition cameras are becoming cheaper. All cameras have sockets to transfer the recording to computers or other media or even play the recording direct to a television. Most recorded video benefits from transferring it to a computer, using an editing program, adding titles and burning it to a DVD. That way your friends will want to see your work more than once.
Finally, again I say - go to a camera store on a quiet day with plenty of time to listen to their advice. You'll learn more than anyone can tell you in an answer here.

Recording from the Mini DV to VHS Tape


Mini dv is a digital recording and VHS is analogue so they are incompatible. Does your camera have an analogue output? That is a lead that ends with something like RCA plugs or a Scart plug. Then you can feed the signal into a VHS recorder.
