I am a novice in the computers and have got a Panasonic MiniDV video camera. I want to convert my MiniDV cassettes into DVDs and I was recently suggested that I can use my computer (with DVD writer) to write DVDs. I dont have a Firewire connection on the computer.

Please advise what all I need to make it work. And what is the easiest way to convert from MiniDV to DVD.

Thank you very much.

Use the WEB Search window...punch in "Video Editing Hardware" and see what comes up.
You just need to get the footage onto a harddrive (along with audio) and you'll need Video Editing Software...research that as well. Best Buy has some good software. And If you have Win XP , Best Buy is LOADED with options for editing your stuff. SoundForge opens New Options for your Imagination. Play with the Audio and add it back to the Video and PRESTO ! A KOOL personal Video!
USB harddrives are Great to store Video & Audio files on. Do Have TONS OF FUN !
