“Hi, I’m new to the board, as I’m trying to figure out how to transfer movies I have recorded (on DV Cassettes with my Sony Handycam DCR-HC40) to my PC or directly burning the movies to a DVD (via the PC). The only way I can transfer the movies to the PC is with special effects and background music — I just want to transfer the raw movie, then burn it to a DVD with other software I have (Roxio). I’d greatly appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks” http://www.ecoustics.com
