Canon Elura 100 to DVD recorder or PC?

by brieck / April 11, 2006 12:02 PM PDT

I just purchased an Elura 100 and realized that my PC (Dell 2400) does not have a firewire port and I do not have a DVD burner. Therefore I need assistance to determine which is more economical- 1) purchasing the DVD burner, firewire PCI card and software or 2) purchasing a DVD recorder. We will be using either to just create DVDs from our vacations and such. I apologize for my lack of technical savvy, but would appreciate any recommendations.

Firewire card and cable $20~40, DVD DL burner $50.
Stand a lone DVD recorder $150~250, get one that has a firewire input. Your choice. John

If you're going to hang on to your computer for a while and plan on doing any editing in the future, I think you'ld be better served setting up your computer for capture.
