First Post, and yes I have a stupid question......
on Feb 10, 2004 at 8:45:21 pm

I received a Sony DCR-TRV22 Mini DV Camcorder for Christmas and am interested in getting into the video editing/dvd creation world. I have dell optiplex 800mhz/ 28gb/ 128ram desktop / 64mb Nvidia. I plan on buying a new computer in the next year or so but it's not in the budget now. I would like to buy some things that I can easily transfer to my new computer when I get it.

Right now I know I need memory, storage, dvd burner, and a firewire card.

I have looked at getting a plextor px-708uf dvd writer ($276 @ and an iomega 120mb external firewire hard drive ($157 @

I dont know anything about the firewire cards or if there are any combatibilty issues with any of the items I have listed.

I will probably be just transferring baby videos and crap like that to DVD for the out of town inlaws for now. If all goes well I will have my own studio in a few years and probably post some job openings for some of you advanced editors. Smile

Thanks in advance for any and all help. Please dont make fun of my computer, I already feel bad enough.
