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 DOWNLOAD THE RECORED VIDEOS TO lAPTOP ? i DONOT HAVE ANY SOFTWARE (DOWNLOADED IN THE LAOTOP) THE SONY HANDYCAM DCR-DVD201E PL ADVISE


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.
If you need any assistance regarding this, you can direct reach me by clicking the following link.

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.

However, you can transfer the video to the Mac Computer. Refer the link given below for the instruction:

Transfer videos from handycam to PC


i will give you a step by step on your camcorder.

  • connect your camcorder using your USB cable to your computer and be sure it is ON
  • Install the cd driver camed with your camcorder. if you didnt prompt on looking for a driver then go to the add hardware on the control panel and follow the procedure there.
  • after the installation you should see the icon on the my computer labeled scanners and cameras and indicating the model of your camcorder.
  • Install Ulead Power Producer or any editing movie that you have like Windows movie maker, nero movier maker etc.. i prefer to use Ulead because its so easy to use
  • after uploading and editing your videos using ULEAD save it on any various types of videos that you like. you should see it after you want to save it.
  • burn your videos on NERO software
Hope you understand my procedures. Good Luck!
