To record a movie back to tape
- Switch your DV camera on and verify that it is in playback mode (often labeled VCR on the camera).
- On the File menu, click Save Movie File, and then click DV camera.
In the Movie Tasks pane, under Finish Movie, click Send to DV camera.
- If you have more than one DV device powered on and detected by Windows Movie Maker, on the DV Camera page, choose the DV device that contains the tape you want to record your movie to.
- On the Cue Your Tape page, using the transport controls on your camera, rewind or fast-forward the tape to the point where you want your movie to be recorded.
- You should verify that you are not overwriting a portion of the tape that contains content you want to keep.
- In the Windows Movie Maker dialog box, click Yes to continue in the wizard.
Wait for your movie to be created and recorded to tape. The time it takes to create and record the movie to tape depends on the length of the movie and the system resources on your computer. You can preview the movie in the LCD display of your DV camera as your movie is recorded to tape.
- On the Completing the Save Movie Wizard page, click Finish.
