Which Sony camcorder? The model number is best - lacking that, the main media storage type: MiniDV tape, ProDuo or other flash memory card, or Hard disc drive?
Then... Which Mac? Laptop (which one), MacMini, iMac, Tower? And which Dell - and which Operating System versions?
Other information can follow once we know what we're working with.
Hey! I just bought a $600 Sony camcorder and I am having some trouble with it. I was looking on another thread and it says that if you film in standard definition, it's easier to transfer it to the computer and it will transfer in a "common format" (.wmv and .avi I suppose?). But if I want to film in high definition, how could I get the files into a "common format", preferably .wmv, since I usually edit in .wmv. Also, if I wanted to use a mac, how would I do it? I bought a mac just a few months ago, and I still need to get used to it. But I usually edit on my Dell, since it's easier for me at the moment.
