This must be one of my most prized computer accessories. The HP DVD Movie Recorder functions as a DVD and CD Burner as well as a DVD and CD Player. It also doubles as a movie recorder. You can transfer videos from you video camera to your computer through this device. You simply connect video/audio cords and with the included program can transfer all your videos to your computer with the ability to fix and edit at your convience or back them up on DVD's! The quality of this product is amazing, the price is a bit high but it is worth every penny paid. I would recommend this product, I use this device to upload any of my Product Video Reviews. Go out and get one, you will love the simplicity and reliability of such a product produced from HP.
