I have a SCL860 Samsung 8mm camcorder. I would like to transfer the video I take with my video camera to a disc, using my computer. Can It be done? And if so, how?

You'll need a video capture card. There are many brands, to suit every budget. That'll get your video onto your hard drive.

Depending how you want to present the video, you may or may not need DVD authoring software (for menus and background imagesd, etc). If you don't need menus, I believe Nero is all you need to convert and burn your video to DVD.

My prefered method of converting is to use Procoder to convert to VOB format (complete with folder structure), then using MagicISO or similar, create an ISO file for burning. It's a long way about it, but I get good results, with control over size (via video bitrate settings in Procoder). Any burning program should handle ISO files.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.
