If you're running OS X and you have iMovie (part of the suite that comes with Leopard) then your mac has a pre-loaded driver.
Just make sure the disc is finalized, then connect it to your mac via the USB cable and select the CONNECT DISC option on the camera. OS X will ask you which program to open it with; choose iMovie. It will open a video capture screen which will allow you to choose which scenes you want to load from the camera. It will take a few minutes to capture the files and save them to a project folder in iMovie; they'll be visible to work with in iMovie from there.
Note: I believe that iMovie converts the .VOB (DVD) files on your camera to .MOV (Quicktime), which can result in a minor loss in quality. But unless you have Final Cut or some other editing software, I don't know any other way to get those videos on your mac.
I have a VDR D220 and I've used it on a couple of projects with iMovie with success. Good luck.
