Hi guys, I need your help! I have NO knowledge of editing software and am trying to find a way to copy my HV30 tapes to my computer to save . How can I do this and can the files be played back from my computer on my HDTV? I went to Best Buy and they recommended a Sony DVDIRECT to make DVD's. They told me it would copy at high definition. When I got it home and openned it up, I found out that is not the case. I would imagine this has been hashed out a million times. I really appreciate all of your help, I do not want to loose the tapes of vacations of my family and my new grandchildren.
