    Wow!!!! All This Help Is Overwhelming!:s
     

  3. There are a couple ways. The usual way is to connect the camcorder to the TV with the cables provided when you buy it. Just like hooking up a VCR or video game.

    I know, in the old days, you can purchase an adapter you place the mini-tape in, the put it in your VCR to play.

    There should be directions on how to connect with the camcorder when you purchase it.
     
  4. Mini-DV is a good format for home use. The cameras usually come with both video cables to hook to a TV as well as a USB cable so you can load the video on your computer, if you have enough memory.

    WOW!!!your post has only been up for a whopping 17 hours overnight.were you expecting people to be beating a path here as soon as you posted?being it's a nice weekend,and the boards are slow as usual,you ain't likely to get "instant service".maybe a valium would help:confused: ;)

    ps.............sorry i can't help.i don't know a thing about camcrders.

    I would suggest spending more than 200 bucks..For 500 you can get one with it's own hard drive.
