Re: cannot find sony usb cable to connect cam to pc
This problem has largely been answered by one of people posting the problem. Once the disk has been finalised in the camera remove it and insert it in the PC's DVD drive. If it "Autoruns" you will be asked what you want to do. If you have no third party video editing software on your machine select .....using Windows Movie Maker and "Import" the footage into that program. If the disk doesn't "Autorun" start WMM and import from your DVD drive (probably drive "D"). Use WMM's Help to find your way around.

Though Mini DVD can not be played back in Mac slot loading player, we have other ways to load Mini DVD to Mac.
Method 1 If Mini DVD camcorder has FireWire or USB; just connect the Mini DVD camcorder to Mac using FireWire, or USB to load Mini DVD to Mac.
Method 2 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB; just shop for external mini-DVD drive that uses either a USB or Firewire connector cable, and then connect the external mini-DVD drive to your Mac and install any extra software that came with it. Insert the mini-DVD into the external drive, and then access the files on the mini-DVD as you normally would to load Mini DVD to Mac.
Method 3 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB; buy an adapter that converts a mini-DVD to a normal DVD by adding on a circular plastic piece that emulates the full size of a regular DVD. Attach the adapter to the mini-DVD and load it into the Mac's DVD drive to access the files. (Check the specifications of the adapter before purchasing, as several on the market do not work in vertical-loading drives like those found on the MacBook Pro.)
Method 4 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB and you don't want to buy a separate external drive or full-size adapter either, but you do have access to a PC, you can transfer the files on the mini-DVD onto the PC, then put them onto a USB flash drive, which will work on your Mac.
If your cam has a firewire connection, you could plug it into the macbook and use iMovie to transfer the videos over. You can also get an external DVD drive to put those tiny DVDs into to transfer it over.
Unfortunately, your camera does not have a USB jack, and does not have any way to transfer digital data from the disc to your Macbook.
I'd suggest loading your disc to a computer with a non-slot loading dvd drive, download your footage there, and either burning the data to a regular-sized dvd or putting the data in a flash drive to transfer it to you Macbook.
Hope this helps!
