Sony DVD camcorder mini DVD problem...

by Ali151516 / February 28, 2008 8:11 AM PST

I have a Sony DCR-DVD 105 Mini DVD camcorder. There's lots of movies on it that I want on my windows vista PC. But when I put the mini DVD in my cd slot the PC says that it doesn't recognize the format, I formated the RW disc in the camcorder though. What should I do to get my movies on my computer?

2 things.

1. Try to finalize the media (in the camera per the instruction manual.)
2. Look up ISOBUSTER.

Is that optical drive in your computer

really only a CD dive? Because if it is, ISOBuster won't help... The drive needs to be able to read DVDs... the data on DVDs is formatted differently that CDs.
