Hi , my problem is a simple one . I can't find software that enables me to burn my movies from my laptop ( Dell Inspiron 6000). The enclosed HD Writer doesn't recognise my DVD drive, Pinnicle Studios doesn't recognise that the camcorder is connected to the laptop but I am able to successfully burn a disc (albeit 20 mins of footage took nearly 15 hours!) . Nero and ulead don't work . Is the problem the software, my laptop , or me ! I could buy the recommended panasonic burner but that would seriously limit my editing capability because I would have to bypass using my laptop. If anyone has some suggestions that would be really appreciated
