    You can"t transfer NTSC Footage to a Pal VCR....
    You would need to transfer the Footage to your PC useing a DV Capture program Like "WinDV" and then convert the Footage to pal useing either a good quality Video editor or use a Program Like "Canopus Procoder" to convert the Files to Pal...
    Once the Files are in Pal format you can output the signal through a Video card with TV out to the VCR to record to Tape, But createing a DVD would be better because going from a High quality format Like DV out to VHS Tape sort of defeats the Purpose of useing a High Quality Format Like DV as VHS quality is Just awefull.....well good luck

    Thanks for your prompt reply,
    I now intend to connect the camcorder to a PCI video capture card that allows analogue RCA and s video input,then use Studio 8 to edit and burn onto a vcd b4 purchasing the card do you see any problems?

    keep up the good work I am csure many of the guys on the forum really appreciate your input
