This is the basics! Connect camera to computer using firewire cable, switch camera on. Then open up Windows Movie Maker. Next select 'Capture from video device' this will then give you access to your camera. Select this and download your video.
You can now drag this down onto the 'time line' and edit and add title etc. When finished select 'File' 'Save Movie file' You will then need to select how you want the movie saved ie to replay on your computer or for email etc. As I said the basics have a go.

I would suggest you check your camera's manual then have a good read of 'brundle' suggested link.

Just had a quick look at your manual and this camera does not have USB or firewire.Then again why would you need it when you could just put the DVD disc out of the camera into you DVD drive on your computer.
