Let's say both my external HD's are full and I want to delete my brothers wedding video because I have no use for it - however, they may one day require a new copy - can I transfer the information to disc so i could reload it one day and make editing adjustments to the film?

sure. download Burn for OS X and burn it as Data, or if it's a DVD image file bur it as a DVD.

Once you've made sure that the file is there, and good, you can delete from your hard drive. A memory like that, you may want to burn a couple.

One thing I bet you haven't thought of is to make a backup on minidv tape. Then you will always have a copy to make more from.

^ You mean I could put an edited movie onto DV tape, kinda like a reverse process?

How can you do that?
