The easiest way without using software is to buy a standalone DVD recorder which has a firewire (IEEE 1394) input connector to accept the lead from your miniDV camcorder. If you're in the UK, the larger Tesco stores have one made by Liteon costing 75 which I've just bought. Set your camcorder running on playback, pause it, set up your DVD recorder to the correct speed for the length of footage you wish to record, start recording and press 'play' on the camera.

To do it on a computer you'll need some video-editing software which can also create a DVD-video. Top dog at the moment seems to be 'Cyberlink PowerDirector' about 50 (UK Pounds). You'll obviously need a DVD-writer in your PC as well, of course.

This reply assumes the CAM has FireWire. Most (all?) DVD Camcorders do not have FireWire, including my own just purchased. The simplest way, if the Cam has AV output connect that to a Recorder (eg with S-Video and or phono leads), play the Video and record it to a standard sized disc.
