Thread: Recording from Camcorder to DVD

  1. #1

    Default Recording from Camcorder to DVD

    Hello,

    I've had a Canon MV750i Mini DV for a year or so and just got a Philips DVD Recorder with HDD and a Firewire Port. It's time to archive some of my tapes...The instructions for recording from the camcorder to the DVD are pretty simple but the recorder does not seem to be receiving a signal signal down the firewire from the camcorder. It's a brand new firewire 4pin to 4pin. The Canon instruction manual seems to hint that the DV might not be compatible with some devices. I'm stuck at the very first hurdle. Any clues?

    thanks

    Hopefully your Philips DVD recorder will allow you to take video and sound from your camcorder. I have a Sony DVD recorder and I just have to press the input select button a number of times to get 'DV input' up on the screen menu and that's it. A control panel with play, rewind, FF and stop appear at the bottom and I can control the camera using the DVD recorders remote (sweet!).
