The files on your camcorder should be mpeg files, unless you finalized the disc. A finalized disc should play on any dvd player. DVD-R disc work with all DVD players, DVD+R disc only work with some DVD players.

Is there a way to hook up a usb cable to a Sony Handycam DVD205?


unfortunately,no. the dvd camcorder was designed for easy dvd disc recording w/o usb or computer connectivity (it doesn't have usb port for connection). comparable models that has the usb jack are dcrdvd305 aqnd dcrdvd755 (which cost more). but don't loose hope.other options to transfer videos from cam to pc is by using the dvd disc (make sure you finalize it) and your computer's dvd drive (make sure it has supports 8cm disc and the disc tray in the right orientation to take the disc so it won't fall out). once inside the drive.open or explore the disc and copy and paste video files saved on the usual video_ts folder or the .vob files. if you need to playback the copied files you can simply change the file name to .mpg or use a file conversion software (which you can easily download for free online, use free file conversion as your search phrase) to convert files to a file format you need for editing purposes. another way to go is to use the supplied a/v cable. this type of connection would need a supporting software and hardware installed in your computer. an a/v capture card should be installed and a compatible video capturing application would be needed. hope this helps.thanks:)

Flip video Camcorder is a creative digital device produced by Pure Digital Technologies. Four series include: the Flip Ultra, the Flip Ultra HD, the Flip Video Mino, and the Flip Video Mino HD. Flip video Camcorder records video in .MP4 format, which is compatible for iTunes, iMovie, QuickTime Player. However, it is not understood by Windows Media Player and Windows Movie Maker. Is there any way to solve the problem?

iOrgSoft Flip Video Converter is an intimate friend of Flip video Camcorder. Owning it, you can encode flip video to common video formats: AVI, MPG, MPEG, WMV, FLV, SWF, MKV, VOB, DV, 3GP, MOV, RM, RMVB and extract audio track from the referred video formats to MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, AC3, MP2, AMR, AIFF, FLAC, M4A, MKA, and RA files.

If you need to edit flip video in Windows Movie Maker, set the output profile as Raw AVI, MPEG-1, or WMV format, and then import the converted files into WMM. Like to enjoy the captured flip videos on your iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Zune, BlackBerry, Gphone or other MP3/MP4 players? Just set the corresponding device profile.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

How do I transfer the mini DVD to Movie Maker


With your Recorded DVD-R Disc "Finalized", and in the DVD player on your computer, you should be able to browse to your videos with Movie Maker.

In MovieMaker, on the left side where it lists:
Movie Tasks
1. Capture Video
Capture from Video device
Import video . . .

You want to "Import Video", by clicking that and browsing to the DVD-R to find what could be MPG files, or VOB files. They're both MP2 DVD format video and audio files.

Tip: Right Clicking in the Import Video Dialogue Box where the files are listed and selecting View / Thumbnails, will present a view of the scenes in each video.

in able for you to copy the video file from your camera you need to install the software to your computer ( video cam suite V.1 ) and your computer must have ability to Burn DVD, plug your mini USB to your video camera and plug the other end to your Computer turn the camera on then press the DVD copy on your camera this will launch the software from your PC make sure you have the Empty DVD to your DVD drive, that should do it...

Vidoes not compatible with PC.


The simplest way is to connect the AV cable from the DVD camcorder to a video card, which will convert analogue to digital ( such as Dazzle Digital Video Creator, which connects to a windows computer by a USB), play the video on the camcorder, and capture any clips you want with software such as Windows Movie Maker. You then have the Windows Media Audio/Video files on your computer.
