What software are you using for starters. Also, what make of camcorder is it? Do you know what file format the raw data is stored as I.E *.AVI etc

well I've gott digital cam too and I know exactly what you mean.........what you need is CAPTURE software.....the 'standard' windoze stuff dont do this.....

In my case i'm running pinnacle studio8 software which allows awsome video editing and capture functions you'll probably need something similar

Go to the tools section of http://www.dvdrhelp.com/ and go to the tools section for some of the best software for capture and manipulation of dv.  Some i recommend are DVIO for capture (firewire) virtual dub and most of all TMPGEnc for encoding. This place is the really has the most info and tutorials around for what you want
