DVR recording?

I was wanting to transfer the info in my DVR’s hard drive to my computer’s hard drive. How do I go about that? I believe there is a firewire port on the front of the DVR. Do i need to convert the files in order to place them on a DVD. Any help or direction to the correct forum would be greatly appreciated.

Without an exact name/brand no one can help you with.

A firewire port at the front means not much - some of them are only DUMMIES or only allow in OR out!
