If people request dvd copies of our material we use stand-alone panasonic dvd
recorders with success. I copy the footage onto the onboard harddrives and 
do minimal editing and then burn them onto dvd

Once the dvd is finalized i make a copy of it with our computer dvd burner for
our Archives

Hope this helps!


This is the approach we are trying currently, using a Sony DVD recorder. 
However we are having problems with the burner in the computer and the editing 
software is inadequate. Using the DVD recorder only, means running the tape for 
each copy.

It would be better to go directly to the computer with reliable hardware and 
software. I'm looking for recommendations.
