DVD FLICK (free, see google) and creating an .ISO that I later burn to DVD+R with ActiveIso Burner from http://www.download.com/Active-ISO-Burner/3000-2646_4-10602452.html?hhTest=1 (also free) seems to work fine here.
I have a JVC GR-D370U camcorder that uses mini-cassette tapes. I have a dell computer with 80G hard drive. Intel pent. 1.8G, windows xp home edition.
I'm having problems trying to get the video burned onto a dvd. I use dvd+R from Sony and I don't have any problems with this mfger dvd.
I want to capture the video onto a dvd to preserve it as well as view it on a standard dvd player and tv screen.
I've used numerous software, nero 6.6, ulead 7.0, sonic mydvd 5.0, cyberlink powerdirector 7. they all allow me to view the video on my computer during the capture process. the only one that I was able to burn a dvd was the sonic mydvd, however, it only burns a small portion of the video, no matter how I set the settings. I do have ample hard drive space and space on the dvd medium. my dvd burner is a lite-on and it takes all kinds of media(I've never had a problem with this burner nor the sony dvd's).
the cyberlink powerdirector, during playback on my computer where I can test out the video, is not good at all. the video is choppy and the audio is horrible.
the only software that burns onto a dvd is the sonic, but like I said, for some reason, it only burns just a few tracks, and I know that I'm capturing at least one hours worth of video when I'm watching it during the capture process on my computer.
Is there some kind of software out there that can capture video from a camcorder that uses mini cassette tapes and burn it onto a dvd to play on a standard dvd player?
also, the camcorder has a specific dv slot that connects a cord from the camcorder to my computer via a firewire. I've never had a problem with this set up before.
