Your DCR-TRV410 has Firewire (IEEE 1394) capability. So the part of transporting the video onto your PC is easy if your computer has a built-in firewire port. If not, you can pick one up from your local store.

Do you have Windows or Mac? I'm not sure which free video software is included with the Mac. With Windows XP, you can use the included Windows Movie Maker and capture the DV quality video onto your computer through the Firewire connection.

The resulting AVI file produced contains the DV stream. You can burn that file directly onto your CD for storage. Keep in mind that a CD can only hold 700 MB of data, meaning a CD can only hold 3.8 minutes worth of DV.

If you have a DVD burner, you can follow the Beginners Guides: Making DVD Movies from Video Files.

You'll need to get the IEEE 1394 (Firewire) card to connect your camcorder to your computer. Then capture the video using Windows Movie Maker. See these two articles:
