Some miniDV camcorders had analog to digital conversion function. Connect the LD player video and audio outputs to the camcorder through the analog A/V input and then connect the camcorder to the PC via Firewire. That way you can capture the contents onto your PC and then burn into DVD using some DVD authoring software.

Hmmm. Never thought about doing it this way before. Sure is worth trying.

I think you will suffer quality loss converting in the ways mentioned. Unless you can capture the source in it's original digital format. I'm no expert on LD, but doesn't it have Dolby Digital audio?

Either way the end result will never compare to buying new DVDs.
