I'm new to this whole thing. I tried following your guide, and as simple as it seems, believe it or not I couldn't follow it. Thats the reason for the topic of the thread. I have no clue about anything to do with camcorders.
I just wanted to know what a dv camcorder actually is. Is there a little disc inside the camcorder that you can take out? You see, I saw an advert for some Sony camcorder and it said 'Record and watch: make your own dvds' (or something to that effect) and it had a small dvd-esque disc sticking out of the side. It looked as if you could simply record and then watch on a dvd player instantly. Is that true or am I just a moron? If you think the latter do you mind not actually using the word Moron, i'm very sensitive.
Also, how much does an average DVD burner/writer/whatever you call them cost?
I will probably have lots more stupid questions over the coming months so please bare with me, and remember...I'm a moron.
