    Default help with settings please

    I just got the sony 510 a dvd burner and I had bought a sony digital hi 8 cam a few months ago. I down loaded the ulead trial of video 7. Im using the firewire connection from the cam to the computer and want to make dvd's of My old 8 and hi 8 analog movies which the cam reads.

    Im confused about the compressions mpeg. mpeg2, dv, aiv. I have 120 gig H.d just for storing video. what settings should I use to capture the video retainning the best quality. video 7 defaults to dv format with the sony cam should I even change it to something else or just use the dv settings. Am I right in thinking video 7 changes the dv format to mpeg2 when burning?

    Thanks in advance
    amd 2600, abit n2, 1 gig memory maxtor 60 and 120 gig h.d , gforce 4400 video card, firewire on board, win xp.

    If you've got plenty of hard disk space, then stick with the DV format for capture/editing and then convert at the final stage.
