I recently bought a GS180, I have edited the footage that I have taken but would now like to either put it back onto tape or burn it onto DVD. I have tried various ways of doing this via the USB. It basically says its not compatible and I am only able to save it as an AVI file and it's huge!!! (and won't fit on a DVD (6 GB??) - what am I doing wrong???
I've heard a lot about Firewire - could somebody please tell me what it is, what it does and will this solve my problem of downloading edited footage from my PC back to the tape????
Please help a.s.a.p
Firewire is an apple gift to the video etc .
world ( also called standard : ieee 1394 );
it solves some problems better than usb
because it is a peer to peer connection
( all devices communicate with each other )
and your editing will be easier with it ;

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.
You need a capture card or firewire output in your camera (This is faster) these capture card bring a software also for editing. If firewire, there is Premier Pro for PC or Final Cut for MAc.
Make sure you have the right output connector on your Camera.
Hello from Italy!
You need to install on your PC an AVCHD codec and a software in order to read the disk content. Nero 8 (with AVCHD plug in) can do it. I usually read the *.M2TS files with NeroVision, convert them with Canopus AVCHD converter and edit with Canopus Edius. That's all.
