    Its not your Gfx card but the method you are using, for some cameras while capturing through usb streaming... video quality is reduced i suggest you to capture video in .avi (DV) through firewire card so that you can get full quality video first copy it to hard drive and then burn to dvd , and it also depends on software, its settings used for burning dvds

    What make and model camcorder are you using?

    If it captures dv quality then the camcorder should have a dv output - funny looking little female plug - do a google for a dv out picture if you are undertain.

    The "card" referenced would not be in your camera but in your computer. Some PCs come equipped with both usb2 and firewire inputs but if yours doesn't have a firewire input you can inexpensively buy (new around $50us dollars less used) card that would plug into an expansion slot on your PCs motherboard.

    This is one of those simple plug-and-play type cards that you can pop into a slot in minutes.

    USB just won't transfer dv quality video to your hard drive.

    Video Studio does a great job of capture and capture control. Let us know info about your camcorder make and model and there are tons of smarter people than I that can help you.

    briang DV stands for Digital Video, and if you be more specific with your camera make and model than i can guide you more clearly ok and firewire port looks like the one below

    Do not buy this camcorder for the following reasons...

    USB / Audio-Video (TV) Out: Easy picture transfer to a PC or review on a TV

    (No Firewire socket)

    1.5" Color LCD/On Screen Control Panel: Allows you to easily view playback or configure the settings via the LCD display

    (Screen is too small)

    Adjustable 4x Digital Zoom: Digital zoom enlarges your images

    (No optical zoom)

    Camera Resolution Settings: Super 2048x1536, High 1600x1200, Middle 1280x1024, Low 800x600

    (These are still camera settings not video settings)

    Video Clip: 320x240

    (Only shoots video at 320 by 240 whereas 'real' video needs a screen size of 720 by 576)
