If you have a DVD recorder, the easiest way is to use this to put it on a disc. If your DVD recorder doesn't have audio/video in you can get an adaptor to connect to a scart socket click here You can then transfer it to PC for editing if needed.

Can you get hold of an edit lead. I used to transfer from my old JVC with no problems straight into Windows Movie Maker.
