SOURCE: I have a camrecorder sony

From the user manual on page 6, this camcorder can only use DVD-RW or DVD-R DVDs (It can't use DVD+R, DVD+RW, etc).
Take the DVDs that you purchased back and buy the correct type.

Copy handycam mini disc to normal dvd disc using apple mac


most recent apples will not take small discs, use a firewire lead and import on to iMovie then export to iDVD (you can edit simply in iMovie) and burn as many dvds as you want

Software for applemac


Hi, Well, congratulations on the new Mac upgrade.
You will be pleasantly surprised to hear that there is no mac software for any video camera.......
Because all the necessary software for any and all digital video cameras is built right into the MacOS and the iMovie application and the iPhoto Application.
So, all you have to do is connect your camera to your Mac, using the cable that came with your camera, either firewire or USB turn on the camera and then launch iMovie and the Mac will automatically recognize that a camera is connected and it will ask you if you want to import...
Voila Fantastic merveilleux hooolala !!
