Downloading videos from camcorder canon DC230

I am using canon camcorder DC230. I shot many functions and festivals. I couldn't download the recorded videos from the camcorder and more over, I couldn't play the finalised DVD in computers or in DVD players. When I purchased the camcorder, I did not get "My DVD for Canon" CD-ROM. How can I transfer the videos from the camcorder to computer?

    Same problem here. Plug the camera into a Windows Pc via USB and you get another DVD drive appear in MY computer. You cant explore it to look at whats on the camcorder... or do anything with it in fact.

    H E L P!

    Same problem.... Can't play any dvd on my laptop (vista). Ready to launch camera out of the window. The dvd drive wont even recognise the dvd...

    I am using compatible dvd's for my laptop and have formatted dvd to video before recording. Again didn't get my canon dvd with camcorder.....

    Same problem. Once the mini DVD is inserted, the laptop freezes after playing the 1st frame. I tried to download the software, but the file was corrupted. Frustrating to say the least and the Canon website is less than useful.
