Well, therein lies the problem. You are probably right but I really want to film something (wedding, christening, holiday, whatever) and then just leave it on the disc, put the disc in a case, write on the case what it is and put it in a rack so that years afterwards I can thumb through the rack and say "oh look the video I took of the ribnet trip to folly 2009" lets watch that again.
