I am completely new to DVD burning. I would like to take video from my Camcorder and put it on a DVD with menus, etc. I would like to know about the following if anyone can help: 1. Hardware - From what I have read, I am going to get a dual format burner (+R/-R). Is there anything else I should be concerned about? 2. Software - There are so many different ones out there. The ones that seem to stand out are Pinnacle, Roxio Easy DVD Creator or Nero. Any suggestions. I have heard some bad things about Roxio software. 3. Media - I have read that media can make a difference. Any infomation would be appreciated. 4. Source - Does it make a difference where the video comes from? I have an analog camcorder, but I have seen hardware that will let me save it on the PC as mpeg, avi, etc. I assume this will be fine? I am a software engineer and I have a network at home, so I am pretty comfortable with PCs and installing / configuring, so you probably don't have to dumb it down too much. I just don't want to go buy the first burner I see on ebay and have problems. Although, I have 3 pre-school aged boys at home, so by the time I actually have some free time to put their videos onto DVD they will probably be in college Thanks alot.
