Backup to camcorder

Connect the DV camera to your firewire port. Then use DV Backup to backup computer files to the camcorder. Nope, that is not a joke.

Have you tried it? It sounds like a good idea, at least for "emergency" backups. (I'm probably going to get a low-end iBook because I've a long trip coming up, but not quite enough cash to lay out for the whole Airport setup.)

Nope. I don't have a camcorder. Also, in Europe camcorders have video-in disabled by default (most likely due to stupid IP regulations). Yes, that can be fixed.

As for the iBook: Get the combo drive so can write CDs. That is a good and inexpensive backup medium. You can add the Airport later. They are getting less expensive anyway.

We got the bottom of the line iBook, after a big debate. We're not sure if we'd ever cut a CD from the notebook computer (we can share it and cut it from one of the other Macs when we need that). And, although I wanted the ability to play DVDs because I like the idea of watching a movie on an airplane flight -- to pay $300US for that? I don't think so.

This all started because I have a big deadline looming -- not to mention a book contract that I should be paying attention to -- and we HAVE to drive to San Diego this weekend for my nephew's birthday. It's about 7 hours each way, and now at least I can get some work done enroute.

Cool. Buying an iBook because you can't lose 14 hours. :-) I am actually also thinking about an iBook. It seems to be BETTER than a PowerBook in many respects. However you need to add some memory.
