Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 transferring video?

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?

How to transfer video from camcorder to pc bcoz i have image mixer installed it is not happening dcrdvd201 it says usb driver does not support this version window vista home premium what do i do


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.
