The review at http://www.camcorderinfo.com/content/Sony-DCR-HC21-Camcorder-Review.htm left me with the feeling that any "quality" was never achieved with this model.
However, it may be possible to use FIREWIRE, WinDV and some Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4.0 to get decent DVD results given the stature of this camera.
I learned my lesson about the USB transfers.
i give up !!! lol
after spending a lot of time trying to get it to work, i'm coming to you guys. i was able to capture the video, but haven't been able to get good quality dvd copys that will work on the dvd player.
first, is there a particular way to capture to get the best quality, or does that not matter ?
also, do i need to buy a program to convert and burn to a dvd at high quality, or are there some free ones that do just as good ?
if i need a program, can you suggest some good ones to use ?
let me know if there's anything else i need to know.
