Hook it up.

Connect the video out to video in. Audio out to audio in. Press record on the recorder and play on the camcorder.

Yes you can just hook it up and make your DVDs.
Now if you want to edit and add special effects and be able to use the full quality of your MiniDv camera then you will have to use a computer. John
