Mini Dv tapes cloning in Windows
Hi Guys,I'm trying to do a 1:1 transfer( = just a clone ) of MiniDV cassettes to *.dv files in Windows 8 OS via Firewire. I want to obtain *.dv files not *.avi files.I know a free utility ( but in Mac OS X ) that can do this job - its name is VIDI - it acquire DV tapes via Iee-1394 and transform them in *.dv files .
Is there a similar program in Windows?

DV files are AVI files with a DV codec. ScenalyzerLive is all what you need for 1:1 transfer, WinDV is another one but I prefer SL.

AVI is a wrapper (container). The DV is still DV.

Useful video files cannot usually exist without a wrapper. Almost nothing can handle raw DV (or H264, etc), or handle it well.. Most video software expects video files to be in wrappers, and DV in AVI is the standard that was set back in the 90s.

Hint: That means that there is no such things as an "AVI video", it's the codec inside that determines format. AVI isn't a format.
