Sorry, rank beginner here with a new consumer camcorder (Canon DC210.) It uses mini DVD discs. I haven't been able to get a consumer DVD player to accept the finalized DVD-RWdiscs but I did get the computer DVD to accept and play them after I downloaded some mystery codecs. My question is that, if I can get Windows Media Player to play them, why can't I save them to disk for eventual editing? Shouldn't I be able to copy the video files from the DVD-RW to the hard drive? Maybe I can. Perhaps someone could direct me to a beginners site where I might read about these things. Thanks.
