How do I make a Digital video Recorder that I can use with a USB webcam so no computer is necessary? Answered

I would like to build an inexpensive system to record video using a webcam and some sort of small DVR. This would need to run on batteries.

You are Much better off using a laptop. A webcam uses USB interference,And it needs drivers,that XP usually comes with,And No other device will be able to connect to a Webcam and get video from it. It is not worth the hassle(and probably imposible to do task)to just do such a simple thing,Use a computer
