I have a bunch of Digital 8 tapes that I want to transfer to DVD so I can get rid of this Digital 8 camcorder.

Can someone recommend some software (free or commercial) to help do the job. I've done this before by connecting the camcorder to the computer, saving vid files, and then moving those to the dvd, but I'd like to do it all in one step to save time.

OS: Windows 7 x64

works for me

Beautiful isn't it? – iskra Nov 1 '11 at 15:19
Yes and it has been working well. I'm about halfway through my tape collection with no problems. – Ronnie Overby Nov 1 '11 at 18:40
