    Welcome to the forum. Does the computer have a S-Vid (in) connection? If it does then start the program to capture the video and then start the camcorder in Play mode. That should capture the movie onto the HD. After that you can use Avi2DVD to convert the files to DVD-Compliant form and then burn using whatever program you use.

    Now the bad news: Most of the S-Vid connections on most computer are (out) only. If you have a separate video card that runs the graphics on the computer please post the name and model # so hopefully we can help. If the computer does not have the necessary proper ports then you can maybe find a friend that does and use their computer to acheive what you want to do

    EDIT:
    There used to be a box that you could connect the S-Vid connection to and then that then connected into your usb port. I have not seen one in a while but someone else might have and can direct you to where you can buy one
