I have owned a canon z10 for about 3 years. I have lots of mini cassetes with films, but have recorded to a blank dvd-r only once, with terrible results. I am pretty much lost.
In my once and only time trying to save the film on the dvd-r, I ran into lots of problems. First, my film was WAY to big to save on the 4.7 gb disk. I must admit my ignorance, but how can my 45 amateur film of family and kids not fit, if a 2 hour Hollywood film with music and extras can???? I tried to compress my video to fit using a idvd/imovie. I succeeded and it looked like crap. Also, the whole process took me about 15hours. God, it took forever to save. I guess I need to know something also about recording speeds 4x, 8x, etc..???? Sorry, for the long story.
Anyway, what are the tips to success? I am using a MAC OS X.
Could someone give a 10 step process that could help me? :?::?:
