Just installed EMC 10 and I am able to capture video and edit it with Videowave but when I try to use the Plug & Burn feature, my Canon HV20 does not show up in the drop-down.  Is there a setting that I missed?  Thanks.

Plug n Burn should only work with HV20 when you record in standard definition.  I don't think it supports HDV in that mode.

How do you like that camcorder?  I'm looking at the HV-30 and would like to get real feedback on the HV 20/30 product line.

I thought that might be the case too but Plug & Burn doesn't recognize my Canon HV20 even if I have a non-HD recording.  It's strange that the Capture Video feature sees my camcorder w/no problem but Plug & Burn can't.

Actually, it's a very nice camcorder.  The high-def is quite remarkable.  Going from my previous camcorder to this is like watching VHS vs Blu-ray.

I'm not familiar with the Canon HV30, but I had the Sony HC7 which is also HDV.  I had to MANUALLY set teh camcorder to standard definition for it to work.  Yes, teh camcorder could automatically sense the tape, but always defaulted to HD which Plug n Burn will not recognize.

What worked for me with the Sony:
Manually set the camcorder to SD
Make sure it was in VCR/Playback mode
Plugin the FIREWIRE (not USB) to camcorder and computer
WAIT for Windows to recognize the camcorder. You should see a little camcoder in the systray.
Then launch MyDVD and run Plug n Burn.

It actually doesn't recognize the camcorder even when I have a regular tape in.  Strange.

More than welcome. Glad  you let us know it worked.

The Sony had a feature where it could automatically down convert HD to SD through firewire.  I never tested that feature though.  I believe that also was a manual setting.
