My bet is the CD session must be closed in the camera.

It's a common problem. ISOBUSTER might be able to read it before the session is closed.

Remember that open CD sessions has been problematic over the years. It's also possible that Sony had an app or driver to add this support.

I have one that uses mini DVDs.

These have to be "finalized" in the camera.

May need driver or app.

Here I've had some luck with ISOBUSTER when the maker doesn't update drivers or apps.
