    My disc that came with the camcorder does not even have the software on it. I spent 3 days looking for help - on the support pages at sony, used the live chat and called them. The only and final answer is BUY the program that was supposed to come with the camcorder. Support SUCKS

    I searched the Sony support site. I used their Live chat help. I called their support line. The disc that came with my camcorder is faulty, there is no software on it, only video files. Their answer= BUY the software that I already paid for when I bought the Handycam. Support sucks.

I didnt know that so many people had this problem, but i can give you a little hint...
I work for Sony support, and i know that sometimes it is not on our hands to solves Sony's problems, so recently i've been on some blogs and reviews about camcorder from Sony trying to help with some issues...
This editting issue it's something common, because the camcorder records on DVDs and the format that it records on is VOB, format specifically made for DVDs, and I mean ALL DVDs, so at the end models like DCRDVD92, DCRDVD7, DCRDVD101, DCRDVD201, models that appeared between 2004-2006 doesnt come with a software that can be downloaded online, this camcorder the DCRDVD108 comes with a sw wich name is PMB wich is AVAILABLE online, (go to , the only thing that matters is that you FINALIZE the disc and then you will be able to import the videos to the computer just plugging the camcorder to the computer and selecting USB CONNECT with a little disk icon on it, software is not compatible with Macintosh OS btw, but you can use iMovie 08 or 09.
Hope that this works for you.
