    Huh

    But surely you can just copy these video files across to your computer using firewire/usb with the cables which should have been supplied with your camera?

    Well no, not if all you want to do is copy the files across to your computer at the moment. Windows will recognise a device has been connected and add an extra drive you will notice in my computer that you can transfer your files from.

    I like Adobe Premeire for my movies that i edit. Adobe is great for me. You can do alot of stuff with it and once you get everything down it's not that hard to remember anything.

    You need a firewire card and a free slot to stick it in, in your computer. the attached picture is a firewire card.

    you also need a farely fast computer. You should have, at the bare minumium, 256MB of RAM. you can find how much your computer has at http://www.crucial.com/store/listmfgr.asp?cat=RAM. Start by putting your computer maker in the box on the screen.

    When you talk about "menus on the screens" do you mean like what a DVD has? do you want to make DVDs? if you want to make dvds, you need a DVD-R(W). These are pretty expensive if you get a good one. the actual DVD's that the movies go on are really expesive compared to normal CD's also. A DVD-/+RW that i randomly clicked on the best buy website is $129.99: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=1083714106539&skuId=6714521&type=product.

    If you want to make the menus and you have the DVD-(+)R(W) rom, you will need DVD editing softwere. Adobe will just let you edit the movie but it won't let you put it to DVD (at least the version of adobe premiere i have). i don't know of any dvd editing softwere out there...

    i'm guessing that means you don't know which softwere to buy?? if that's the case, and you have a broadband/cabel modem, than you should download a file sharing program (kazaa, kazza, morpheus, slsknet, ect...), search for "vidoe editing software, download it, and try some out.:cool:

    Use Adobe Premiere, as Fure6 suggested. Don't do anything illegal with P2P programs. If you want to try something get a demo from the manufacturers website.
