    The usual way would be with a length of cable having 3.5mm jack plugs on each end and connecting the earphone socket of your audio to the microphone input of your camera. Remember that nearly all camcorder microphone sockets are mono only so your jackplugs need to be stereo at the audio end with both channels commoned on the camera end or if you have a stereo-stereo lead you can get cheap adapters which take a stereo input and have a mono output.

    This will allow you to record music as you film but if you are trying to audio dub on an existing tape you must first make sure that your camera supports that function and that the sound track was originally recorded in 12 bit sound as you cannot dub on a 16 bit sound track.

    A much easier way would be to take the video into your PC and by means of any cheap editing software add as much music and commentary as you wish as well as taking out any unwanted bits of video. Your camera is allready DV-in enabled so you could then send the finished video back to a tape in your camera with virtually no loss of quality.
