I am new to this, so I need as much help as possible. I am attempting to edit and make a sports highlight Disc from Mini HDV Video Cassettes.

I plan on using Pinnacle Studio to edit the tapes, once I can figure out an inexpensive way to transfer the tapes to my PC.. Is there an player that is reasonably priced that will accomplish this task?

Does the video need to stay in high definition -- recording to Blu-ray, or posting to Youtube, for example. Or do you plan to burn to DVD and simply watch on the TV? The choice here does make some determination on workflow (both ease and method) and costs of creating that final product.

No, the video does not need to stay in high definition.

HDV needs a cameras for playback.
One the files are digital, it's as easy as an editor/NLE, and authoring to DVD (16x9 since HD source).
These days, same for Blu-ray, but still HD final.

This was an unanswered question or unresolved issue found during a site audit. It's hard to have an FAQ when the answers are missing, or final outcomes are unknown. At The Digital FAQ support forum, questions are never intentionally ignored, and may have been missed due to a forum glitch or human error. More details on the audit. (In some cases, threads have been edited/updated with newer information.)
