Backing up miniDV's to DVD as data


…for the record I tried using the search for this question but my browser won’t open the .php file for the search results…

After using my camcorder (miniDV) for the last few years for home movies, I have compiled 20 tapes, each 60 minutes in length. While I’m not quite ready to jump to the next step and author a DVD, I do feel I should at least backup the tapes to a DVD as data so I can start recycling the miniDV tapes.

The data when extracted from the tape is approx. 15GB. I want to be able to fit this on to one DL DVD and obviously do not want to lose quality when compressing.

Does anyone have a work flow suggestion? Software to use? Anything to watch out for?

Thankyou so much for your attention.

WOW! What a response!
