I have a Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 and want to transfer my videos so I can edit them to my Mac or my PC that has Vista. The ImageMaker that came with the camcorder is not compatible with Vista. And my Mac does not have a DVD drive that will take the small disks, and my Mac does not have an outlet for a firewire or iLink. Any suggestions on how I can do this? Software I can buy? etc?

It is not required to use any driver to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.
Once you connect the Camcorder to the Computer, you will get the DVD disc in the Camcorder as an additional drive under My Computer.
You can find the Video_10 folder under the drive and copy it to the Computer to transfer the videos.
However, there are some occasion, computer may ask driver when connecting the Camcorder.. It may be due to genuine driver incompatibility..
In these type of situation, you can finalize the disc in the Camcorder and insert it in the CD/DVD drive on the Computer to transfer the videos.
You can use any software which you used to playback the commercially produced discs to playback the videos from the disc.

Hi, There is no need to hook camcorder with computer through USB, all is required to Finalize recorded DVD in camcorder and put that disc in computer to copy files for further editing etc. Finalized disc in camcorder will be recognized in any other dvd player or dvd-rom. Finalize disc option is available in camcorder menu. Thanks.
I wish to transfer my DCR-TRV480 NTSC video to my PC. I have set my camera to Play/Edit mode. However, when I insert my USB cable into my video camera, the message "Disconnect the USB cable before changing the setting" appears, preventing me from playing/transfering my video. What can I do?
