Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

New laptop I have Sony Handycam Mini DV tape digital camera and wish to purchase a laptop which has the hardware/software to allow me to download and burn movies to DVD Can you possibly assist in the spec. to look for please?


Answers :

Any laptop that has an iLink 1394 (firewire on apple computers) port and a DVD burner can do it. Any apple laptop with a superdrive (dvd burner) can do it with iMovie/iDVD, and any windows computer with the i.LINK port and Windows Movie Maker can do the job. I know most (if not all) sony, dell, acer and HP laptops come with the i.LINK port standard, just double check the model when you look at the specs. You'll want at least 1gb of ram (preferably 2GB, especially if you're running windows vista), and the firewire cable to connect the computer to the minidv camera (6 pin to 4 pin if you get an apple computer, 4-4 pin if it's a windows notebook)
