Sony's compact line of Handycam camcorders traces it roots back to 1989 when the company rolled out its passport-sized CCD-TR55 8mm video camera. The series entered the digital age in 1995 and went HD in 2005. Released in 2007, the company's DCR line of Handycams – including models in the DCR-SR40, DCR-SR60 and DCR-SR80 series – features One Touch disc burning, allowing you to burn DVD copies from your camcorder with just one button press.

Step 1

Open your PC's disc drive and insert a blank DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-RW or DVD+RW. Close the drive.

Step 2

Power up your PC and your One Touch-compatible Sony Handycam. Use the camera's included AC adapter for power. Insert one end of the camera's included USB cable into the camera's USB slot and the other end into an available USB port on your computer.

Step 3

Press the “DISC BURN” button on your One Touch Handycam – the location of this button may vary per model. Once the disc is recognized a disc recognition window appears on-screen and the disc starts burning. When your DVD is done, the disc try opens. Remove your DVD and close the disc tray.

If you have too much hard disk content for a single DVD, a window prompting you to insert another blank DVD will appear. Follow the instructions and insert a new disc to keep burning.
