Price not an option since "best" is the goal. Assuming FIREWIRE connection.
1. Final Cut Pro HD.
2. Adobe Premeire.
3. Sony Vegas.
berween free and 30-40 dollars
By the Best i mean quality And the price free and under 30-40 dollars. i have a fire wire connection
(NT) Did you try WINDV?
Best and free is an oxymoron. That will not change.
$30-$40 might as well be free.
You mean what is the best free software. I don't have a clue. I think you get what you pay for.
I just want home videos
i just need to get home videos of the camera and i DONT need any editing
(NT) Microsoft Movie Maker?
it's better to buy DVD camcord. if you do not need editing
i think you should read articles on the following link first:
if you just want to make home videos without editing, it's better to buy a fairly good CDR-DVD camcorder instead of MiniDV one (with budget $400-600). cheers

What I don't understand is...
Since WINDV is free and easy to find, why didn't you give that a go?
I tried Dv rack
i tried a free trial version of DVRack but it wouldnt open.
and i have windows movie maker but the qaulity is bad maybe it is just my computer or something
Free, no trial, no install, something I use all the time.
If it fails, then something is sorely wrong with your PC, cable or other.
i just tried WinDV
and it didnt work very good so i guess something else is wrong with my PC or cable
After all this, I didn't read what the PC is.
I've captured with my lowly Pentium 3 600MHz laptop with WinDV so it doesn't take much of a computer. But then again not much was told about the host PC.
Try another PC?
In my opinion, and regardless of whether or not you intend to edit any video, I have found Microsoft Movie Maker to be very simple and easy to use for capturing video off my camera. Heck, it even does a decent job of basic editing, adding titles and/or credits, etc. And it came free with Windows XP so it's a win/win in my book.
Regarding the other gentleman's comments about going DVD recording instead, there are still some issues with compression and such that I find in current reviews of many of those particular camcorders. My friends who have them really like them, but if you're looking for a higher quality picture and longer recording times (as well as a cheaper medium), I still think the Mini-DV format rules.
I tried to convert miniDV to DVD format with Nero6. There are problems of lost frames.
I have downloaded Windows Movie Maker 2.0, but there no option of making DVD. How can I do it?
Is WinDV better? Haven't tried yet.
