    Has anyone tried transferring their camcorder footage to DVD using the Pioneer DVR-A03? Now that there is this DVD writer available for a reasonable price (£600) it seems it is finally practical to make your own DVDs. Of course you need a capture card too, but this looks like a great way to store home movies etc. The discs are a little pricey at £10 each but they will play on the majority of existing DVD players.

    buy a G4 mac - it makes it so easy.

    Obviously it costs a bit, but with the Pioneer drive in it, it's a good solution.

    Have fun.

    Just got a new Apple G4 with cd/dvd burner built in - not had a good play with it yet - but I'll let you know how it fairs if you're interested...
