I'm an amateur movie maker. So don't get mad at me.
My computer doesn't have a Firewire port that goes with my camera. (JVC GR DA30.) My dad's has one, but it's attached, so we can't take it out. My camera needs a 4 pin to FireWire IEEE 1394, and my computer needs a USB 2.0.
But I'm not done with the question yet.
I used to make videos with my dad's computer, and now he says I can't even save it to my own CDs instead of his computer. His one and only option for me is to look on Tiger Direct, not find anything, then scour the store, find nothing, and then get told, "That's too bad. 'Cause I still won't let you use mine." And I'm stuck in his phase for a good six years.
I'm trying to put a video on YouTube. How can I turn my MiniDV tape into a DVD (which my dad does let me use) with the help of no computer what so ever.
