I think that, first of all, you would need1. a DVD drive, capable of writing to some or all sorts of DVD (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+, etc.)2. DVD 'burning' software. I think the standard would be Nero software, but some might regard other choices as better for 'common usage'.3. a computer to run (2) and with (1) installed in it. Then with a blank DVD of appropriate type in the drive, you would start the DVD software, and create the DVD content, then write (or, 'burn') it to the disc. Then perhaps 'Finalize' the disc, for more extensive readability on various devices. But I take it, you need to know how to assemble the video clip content from the camera first. If you have Windows 7 or Windows XP, they have Windows Movie Maker, which can stitch together video content with reasonable ease, even if you are a beginner. Having put together a 'Movie Project' in W.M.M., you write that to a video clip file type, e.g. MPEG4, or the like.Then you have the 'video content' which can be burned to the DVD disc with the DVD software as needed. As for getting files from the camera to the computer - that's the easiest part. If you have an Apple computer or Windows 8 instead, or need any other instrucion, let me know.
