VERY new to this video lark! - I am using Windows Movie Maker and I want to
capture video from my Sony MiniDV camcorder as DV-AVI. However, this option
is not enabled - I can only use "Best Quality for Playback on My Computer"
or "Other Settings" ... any ideas would be much appreciated.


Hi bird,
You can capture video in DV-AVI fromat if you got Firewire port on your
computer. If you got one (firewire port) connect you camcorder through
Firewire (in sony cam they call it as iLink).
Then the DV-AVI option in Windows movie maker will be enabled.
If you don't have firewire port get one fire wire card (PCI).
