It records onto a mini cd and my buddy just copied it to DVD-R and I assume that is digital. I have been trying to read spec on 2 different programs Roxi DVD Decorder, and Nero 9 but the more I read the more I seem to get in the dark and now looking as Windows movie maker.

RT3232,

Hope you got your video read, edited and posted by now. What your friend gave you is digital, but reading your 2 posts made me wonder if your friend finalized his DVD-R before handing it to you. If not, it will only play on his PC - if that. It is also not clear to me if you can see it on the TV thru the camcorder, or whether you used a DVD player to look at it on the TV. Which was it? It is not unusual to have an up-to-date operating system that lacks a DVD decoder. The consumate wisdom of Microsoft is resplendient with little problems like that. Realplayer or WINDVD or some other third party stuff ought to let you play it. For example, Windows Media Player or my PC just does not like to play video recorded on my FlyCamOne2, until I edit it and output it with Pinnacle Studio. There are other people who have PCs running XP that have no problem looking at the same video that my build of Media Player dislikes. You need to figure out what your PC wants and find it. In one instance, I lost the ability to burn DVDs outside of Studio after a Windows update. Rather than fight it, I bought a new DVD burner and was delighted to learn its laser could burn titles onto the DVD. Nice!

What I have is just a copy of his original cd, and I have found a a DVD DECODER that lets me play it on my PC, but due to hunny do's and a much needed vacation I have not got a editing program as yet, and don't want to post till I can get most of the bad stuff out, turns out this was the first time he used the camcorder so what he got had a lot of junck ie: grass post trees out of focuse etc.

So if you have a suggestion on a good simple program, it would be a great help

Thanks for your help

Roxio and Nero are both useless rip-offs IMHO

To be honest,

if you have Windows: Windows Movie Maker is good enough to make any video

if you have Mac: iMovies is enough

If you wanna make nice videos you have to get away from free software.

I agree with Tinkman, stay away from the free stuff. I use Pinnacle Studio 12, its very good out of the box and has plenty of add on FXs.

I'm running Pinnacle studio 14 HD ultimate. It's very good, lots of options for editing. i also use adobe premier pro in creative master suite 6 which is very profesional (which my spelling is not ) it is harder to use. and none of these are free but these two are very good.

I know they've been mentioned a few times already, but let me give you my choice.

I tried Adobe Premier pro for a minute and it did the job, but I found the interface difficult to deal with and unintuitive (not sure that's a word but you understand I'm sure) So many things I wanted to do I had to look up and would then forget next time I made a movie.

If you ever worked with audio software like Cakewalk sonar X and previous versions like I have to write music, you'd be right at home using Sony Vegas Pro. I am running that now. It is my goto. I don't have to figure out how to adjust gain on audio tracks or do crossfades and transitions between video sequences. every possible control you'd want on an audio or video track is availble just by hovering over the end of a clip. You can shrink or expand the clip or apply fade in or out properties to th ebeginning and end just by clicking when the correct icon shows up and dragging toward the center of the video or audio clip.

Saves time. Using Adobe it would take me up to 5 hours to make a simple stupid 5-10 minute video with all the editing and subsequent need to look things up while doing it. With vegas pro, it was like slipping into old shoes. Even the online reviews consider it to be one of the top 2. The review went "Every bit as good as premiere pro, with an arguably better and more intuitive interface."

They weren't kidding.

All my newer videos are way better as a result. (camera work excluded lol)
