If I wanted to do this (if I had a camcorder) I would use my standalone Panasonic DVD recorder which
I use for recording TV progs and also transferring
films from my old archive of VHS tapes.

The first thing you would need is some Capture hardware. I use Dazzle Fusion (which is an external USB connection) from click here or click here Unfortunately, the price of this product seems to have rocketed since I bought it (£47, now seems to be around £63). You could also buy a capture card to fit internally, which may be cheaper. Once it is captured to your hard disk then the burning software you have with your DVD burner will do the rest.
