This solution should be followed when creating a DVD using a DVDirect device with videos recorded on high definition (HD) or standard definition (SD) from hard disk drive, memory stick, and flash drive camcorders using a USB connection.

  1. Turn the DVDirect on.
  2. Connect the camera to the DVDirect.
  3. On the camera, select USB Connect for storage media.
  4. On the DVDirect, push the Menu button.
  5. Select the type of DVD you will create.
    • For HD videos, select AVCHD Dubbing from the menu.
    • For SD videos, select Video DVD from the menu.
  6. Select your desired recording mode.
    • Full: Allows you to burn all videos from the camera to DVD
    • Incremental: Allows you to add video in the future to the same disc.
    • Playlist: Allows you to burn a playlist from a playlist created on the camera.
    • Select Videos: Allows you to select the desired recordings either by thumbnails or by shooting date.
    • Consolidation: Should be used when you have more than one 8 cm disc to copy. This mode allows you to consolidate and record their contents onto a single 12 cm disc.

    NOTE: More information regarding these recording modes is available in the supplied manual. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

  7. Press the Record button on the DVDirect. The burning process will start.
  8. Once the recording is done, wait until the finalization of the disc is complete. After the finalization, the disc is then ready to be removed and played back.
