The Panasonic SDR-H60 is a digital camcorder that can be connected to a computer or disc writer for burning DVDs. The camera features one-button transfer of video footage from the Panasonic camcorder's hard drive to a computer where the digital file can be stored, edited if desired and burnt to a disc. The connection requires a USB cable supplied with the Panasonic camcorder to plug into any USB port on the computer.

Plug in the AC adaptor to the power jack on the back of the camcorder and connect the other end to a wall outlet. The camcorder cannot be used to dub DVDs using the battery pack.
Connect the Panasonic to the computer with the USB cable that came with the camera.
