I can't seem to get any software (even the programs on the disc that came with the camera) to recognized when the camera is plugged in. The programs open, but tell me the camera isn't plugged in. The USB cable tha came with it doesn't actually fit the camera (but it WAS an "open box"). My firewire all plugs in fine, but none of the programs seem to be able to find the camera.

How can i do now to read the movies from the disc ? Thanks a lot !
Are you connecting to the camera with a USB cable? Many camcorders will not allow you to transfer video over the USB interface. Video transfer often requires a Firewire connection and software. You'll need a Firewire cable (sometimes called a DV cable).
If you computer is reasonably new it most likely will have a Firewire port. If not, you'll need to install a Firewire PCI card.
The software I use is called Scenalyzer. There are other options, but Scenalyzer has a free demo you can try. You can download the software here:
the software (ulead) included with the camcorder does not recognize the file type even when its in a .avi format. The computer will recognize it and it will even run through another program. But I need to be able to upload the .avi file to the program that came with the camcorder so I can edit them before they are burned to the DVD. The other program that I have (trial version of Allok - I had to try it since ulead wouldn't work) will not edit, only burns. AND it leaves a very visible watermark because it is a trial version. IPlease help.
mini DVs sometimes can't be access using usb interface, try to look if u have a firewire interface, be sure your laptop supports IEEE1394. power dvd is the best player for dvd files. -r means recordable, not rewritable (rw). if ur not familiar with video editing, you may not be able to burn it to disc, but you can play and watch everytime.
