I have finally taken the plunge and got myself a camcorder - sony dvd106E with picture motion browser software. I got it in order to record family events, interviews etc to share with the rest of the clan. Having filmed the old family home before it was sold, I am now unable to transfer the video to dvd. Here is the gist of the problem:
Loading software to laptop, no problem, loading film from dvd camcorder to laptop, no problem, transferring video from laptop to dvd disc - BIG problem.
The message on the software says that there is 'no drive'. (There is, I have watched dvd's on the drive that supposedly does not exist). I don't know how to change this error as I can find no help on the software.
I wondered if I was using the wrong size dvd disc and bought some more, still no luck (I have now tried both 12 and 8 cm discs). I'm hoping for a simple solution, all suggestions gratefully received, please help! Many thanks.
It was supposed to be a gift for my father's 75th birthday in July, but now I am hoping to give it to him for Christmas.
