HD Camcorder backups

I have a HD camcorder that I'm just getting used to, but I'm a little confused about getting the content into my computer or onto DVDs. The USB connection only seems to work if I have the camera set to photo. When it is set to video content the computer won't recognize it. The manufacturer recommends a separate DVD burner($170). I can record in high def content(MXP) or standard content(FXP). Will the high def content(my preferred, obviously) be able to be recorded on regular DVDs? I don't think it will. Does anyone have any experience getting high def content onto DVDs? Will I need to go to BlueRay? Any info would be great. Thanks.
