Copy miniDV videotape to DVD
Posted on 2011-09-02
I've got a Canon ZR85 digital video camcorder. It's got S-video, DV, USB and AV terminals. My question is how do I use one of the available terminals to copy the miniDV tapes to DVD?
I've got a Dell Optiplex running Vista with Windows Movie Maker & Windows DVD Maker. I've tried plugging in the camcorder to the PC with the USB cable and then selecting "import from digital video camera" but I get an error message that says it doesn't find a compatible digital video device.
I would like to maintain the greatest video quality possible. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
