Usually you need a piece of software to read the camcorder and take the DV stream off it.

windows movie maker reads camcorders

its probably the easiest to use, then Nero.

There are toms of others.

Most minidv camcorders also require you to use firewire(1394) for the transfer. The dumb thing is that they usually don't include a firewire cable, but instead a USB cable which is only good for transferring still pictures from the camera. Also, if you pc doesn't have a firewire, then you'll need to add a card to get the ports.

As has been said movie maker should work that comes with Windows. I've also used Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere which are both good editing packages as well.
