Have had DC22 for 7 years, still going strong to create directly usable mini-DVDs

Summary: I recently began using this camcorder again to create direct to mini-DVD recordings to leave with folks who can then pop them directly into a DVD player, so I thought I should add a review of this 8 year old technology. This feature is certainly popular among people who don't have good network bandwidth to watch YouTube, Facebook and other digital sites, or are not comfortable replaying digital media videos on PCs, though some newer, inexpensive video players and flat...
Summary: This is my second DC 22. I bought my first one 5 or 6 years ago, and only had to by another one because my first one quit reading discs recently. I like the dvd format and the ease of use. Great Camcorder!
Summary: I am just learning to use this camera. I loaded the supplied Roxio MyDVD for Canon software on my computer and plugged in the USB cable. When you go to the video capture screen it says that this version of the software, MyDVD LE, does not support image capture. After a few phone calls back and forth with the Canon service center (in Virgina, not India which is nice), we found that you should NOT go to video capture.
Summary: We received this camera as a gift. We loved the features and the nice crisp image... until we tried to watch it on anything other than the camera's own tiny screen. My husband is pretty computer-savvy, but we couldn't get the camera to connect via USB without crashing the computer. Every time. The roxio "my DVD" software, in a word, sucks. You must register to use it, and it makes us re-register every time we boot up. Plus, it won't access the DVD.
Summary: Received this item as a gift, was so thrilled to have it for the kids first day of school. Luckily I was playing around with it the day before and found out what a piece of crap this camera is. I recorded and then tried to finalize and found that the amera could not read the disc - amazing since it s the canon one that they even provided with the camera!! Then I lost everything I recorded.
