I am just getting started making videos, I have a Samsung 34x video recorder. Have no problems with uploading videos to my computer and I have purchased roxio dvd software to help me edit great videos, also have windows movie maker, which is easy to use. Now to my question, can I record onto my cd rom using a dvd? So far I haven't been able to figure it out, if I can. When I try to burn, it shows up on grey box that drive is empty. Do I have to purchase an external setup for a dvd like my cd rom?
