How to Convert Mini DV to Panasonic DVD Recorder
Transfer the information of your miniDV tape onto a blank DVD. (sd and minidv image by TEA from

Many digital video cameras record directly onto a small videotape known as a MiniDV (mini digital video). If you want to convert the miniDV into a DVD, but don't want to spend extra time uploading the tape to a computer, editing it, then sending it to a DVD program, it is possible to directly record the programming onto a Panasonic DVD recorder. This device is typically used with televisions, but thanks to the video output on all miniDV based cameras you are able to directly sync the two products together.

Skill level:

Things you need

  3. 3

    Power on the miniDV camera and the Panasonic DVD recorder. Insert the blank DVD at this time.

    Press the "Play" button on the miniDV camera, then select "Record" on the DVD recorder and the content on the tape is recorded directly onto the blank DVD.
