how do you connect the cameras to your PC?
The mini-DV DCR PC1000E should be connected with a firewire cable (also called i-link by Sony), you might need to get a firewire card for your PC, once you connect it you can capture with any video editing app'.
With the DVD, just put the recorded DVD-r from the camera in your DVD-rom drive and copy the footage across. You might have difficulties editing the Vob files from the DVD, but there's hundreds of posts on that subject already.
