DVD's: Instant Access to Home Movies

AP -- When D-V-D recorders first arrived, the price tag was around 18-thousand dollars. Today, they're under 500 bucks -- a price that's attractive to consumers.

Pioneer's Andy Parsons says people are primarily using D-V-D burners to transfer home movies to D-V-D.

He says most burners come with software that allows you edit your movies before you put them on a disc.

If you want the absolute best transfer, Parsons suggests using a digital camcorder. That said -- transfers from V-H-S and eight millimeter tapes look decent, too.

Depending on the quality you want, a D-V-D disc can hold up to eight hours of home movies or as little as one hour -- at the highest possible quality.
