I had a JVC mini dv camcorder. been taking video of my kids for years. Started to download to DVD and noticed issues with quality.
I bought a second hand samsung to download with. am now getting pixelation on the right hand side.
Borrowed a canon camcorder from a friend and although it can playback really well but whilst downloading my computer ejects the dvd after about 20 minutes. What ami doing wrong?
Ive tried a cleaning tape on the samsung, no use.

The experts here would need more information about the software and settings you are using to give you any answers about the quality issues.
The 20 minute limit sounds like you may be using a computer with the hard drive formatted in FAT32, which has a file size limit of 4GB. This equates to 18 minutes of DV video.
