    Default Rookie Home Video Question

    Hey all,

    So my wife and I had a little boy earlier this year and I bought a digital camoder so i could record some home videos. I just noticed that I could record right onto an SD memory card. I even figured out how to transfer onto my computer and can see it on Windows Media Player. Now the question is how do I burn into onto a DVD. I've seen DVD-Rs and DVD+Rs advertised. What do I buy and can I burn onto them using Windows Media Player? I'm on Vista (new computer) and can burn DVDs I think.

    thanks for any help guys

    Someone may correct me on this, but I do believe either DVD-R or DVD+R will work just fine. here's a link...

    thanks guys, apparently my computer has this (16X DVD+/-R SuperMulti DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology) so i guess i can use both. Buying a computer can be a real experience, I don't think I ever felt so old and out of touch.

    thanks again for the help guys

    Make sure to put some black electrical tape over the little red light before you install it in the women's restroom. Good luck with your new business.
