Re: transfering editing and burning
I think you may be able to use 3rd party software like "ConvertXtoDVD" the camera records in type of .mpg format & this can be used by many programs including Media Player as long as ya have the right "CODEC" to play and manipulate them. So identify the CODEC, what type of .mpg etc, the camera records in and get , Down Load, that one for Media Player. You may be able to use Windows Movie maker too, but any of the good movie programs would do. I have enclosed some helpful links to further help..

Connect it to your PC via USB, if your camera prompt you of some choices, choose Back Up using camera's navigation keys, wait for a while until your camera is detected. Doing this for the first time your PC will ask you to insert CD(included when you purchase this product) and it will guide you through until its done. Once detected, your camera behaves like as an external hard disk drive. You may use the editing software included in your CD to view, edit or burn your videos to CD or DVD. Good Luck
connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable.
Switch on the cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.
You can then use Move Maker to any disc burning software like Nero to create the movie disks.
i have vista and this worked for me
make sure cam is off and usb it to ur pc.
turn on cam and chose back up to pc
go to computer and open the foloders on your cam
minimize the page and drag the sd folder to your desktop
transfer files to windows movie maker
edit publish to whatever you want(dvd)
if you have vista you dont need the camera software,in fact the software sucks neway
It would depend on what type of connection you have on your computer and video camera. The most common way to transfer video from camcorders is to utilize a firewire cable from the camcorder to the computer. You will need to be sure your computer has a firewire card also. Record the video onto your computers hard drive with a digital video program, while keeping in mind that video is rather large before being burned onto disc, so make sure you have plenty of hard drive. Then edit, and burn to a disc.
Another option is to purchase a unit you directly hook your camcorder to and burn with this unit if you do not want to use your computer.
buy that wire, check ur camcorder if it has 6pin or 4pin for firewire then check ur pc if it has firewire card...if not you have to purchase the ieee1394card. install it then connect your camcorder to pc through firewire and that will be it.. u also need to have a software for video capturing and editing like adobe, roxio, pinnacle , etc...hope that helps.
