Brilliant.
Can I suggest that you get it on to your PC and backed up on CD-ROM or DVD before doing anything else.

Putting it straight onto DVD will be the first thing I will do.

As I have a very fancy recordable DVD player with hard drive, that I can plug the video recorder into and understand completely.

I just can't do computers, but I'm learning. If I knew how to turn a computer on years ago I would have a membership number in single figures. :lol:
