You should be able to download the software for your camera

from the Canon website. If that's a problem, a Canon dealer might be willing to copy the software for you. I was able to take that route once when I was on vacation.

???Mini Disk Format..

I can't understand your situation..
It seems you have taken DV-footage and only kept the Mini Disk Files leaveing the actual Digital Camera behind..
Thinking you could access these FILES REMOTELY..from a differant Country..
First OFF..PalmCorder's use DV Files..with-out a Conversion you would sit waiting like one week to get your Complete FILE transmitted over the internet..
..I have waited 30-minutes to get 3-minutes over a Dial-Up Connection..of WMV..poor quality compared to DV.
