Many options. 1. Hook up a DVD recorder to your camcorder or tape deck. Play the tape, and record the DVD. 2. Use video software to import your tape, and then record that file to a DVD, using iMovie or something similar. 3. Hire someone to do the video conversion for you.

NO Not unless you have a recorder. The laser in a recorder burns the data onto the surface of the DVD. If you wish to transfer a video file from your Digital Video Recorder to a Disc, you must have a burner to do so. You may, however be able to transfer the data from your DVR to your computer using a cable. But not knowing your model, I cannot advise for sure.
