Well, I'm about to throw the video camera out the window and forget about it !
I bought a camera because:
I want to take videos (my kids are 10, 9, and 5).
I want to edit and copy the videos to send to my brothers (Hawaii and Alaska) and my parents (very far away).
So, I bought a Panasonic VDR-D210 DVD Video Camera.
I take a video (17 minutes of a blond phase black bear eating acorns in the wild) and try and put it on windows moviemaker..... 4 days and countless hours later and I'm fuming
I call Panasonic and ask them what I need to do and they say I needed to buy the VDR-D310 and it comes with editing software; and the 210 I can't do ANY of that with.....
Now there are millions of videos on youtube etc and there must be a way to do this with my camera. I would like to share some things I've done with family but I'm totally at a loss.
The format for DVD RAM is "VR format".
The format for DVD RW is "VR format" or "Video format".
I've never tried DVD RW discs, only RAM in VR format.
I'm hoping someone is the guru who knows exactly what I need to do...
Right now I have a camera that only allows discs to be watched on the DVD player after I finalize the disk. No music, no editing, etc.
Thank you for reading this and please post any thoughts / ideas.
