Does anyone know the approx time it takes to burn a 10 minute video with this device?

Regarding the Sony VRDMC6 DVDirect Compact Size DVD Burner with AVCHD Recording, can you just plug this into a SONY HD camcorder and press one button to record DVDs? I record basketball games (about 75 minutes each) and I'm seeking this device so that I did not have to use my PC each time to burn a DVD. Are there any issues with this approach?
