Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105 DVD Camcorder

Transfering Videos to my computer?

Hi,

My HandyCam DCR-DVD105 uses 8cm DVDs. I have eight of these DVDs, and they are all rewritable. They each have about 30 minutes of video on them. I want to get these files onto the computer. Then I would like to burn the videos on these eight DVDs onto one or two standars size DVDs.

When I put one of the 8cm DVDs into my computer, after finalizing it, it plays using Windows Media Player. When I open the DVD folder, there are around six files. They are all named either VIDEO_TS or VTS_01_0 or VTS_01_1. Some of them are NeroShowTime.Files7.bup files, some are NeroShowTime.Files7.ifo files, and the rest are VOB files. When I double click on the .bup files, Windows Media Player starts up, but it says the .bup extension is not recognized my Windows Media Player, so it doesn't play. But if I double-click the .ifo or VOB files, then it plays on Windows Media Player. However, if I copy one of the .ifo or VOB files and paste it in a different location, it doesn’t play.

How can I transfer my videos to the computer? Someone told me that I had to rip the files. I don't think I have any programs that can do that for me. The only option I have now is to burn each of he eight mini DVDs onto one standard DVD, but I don't want to do that. I need to get these videos on the computer so that I can delete them from the DVDs and reuse them.

Thank you!

Sounds like you have conflicting file associations, which means that some types of files open in one player and others in another. However, this isn't your main problem.

To play the DVD file on the pc you need to have the .ifo, .vob and the .bup files in the same directory as well as the video_ts files etc. Easiest way to do it is to copy ALL of the files from each disk to a folder on the pc, then you can play them from there and format your disks ready to be re-used.

If you'd like further help with converting the format and sorting out your file associations please post again but the above information should cure your immediate problem.

How do I get Handycam DCR-DVD305 to recod videos onto a memory stick duo pro?


It is not possible to record the videos onto a Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo, as this Camcorder DCRDVD305 does not support video recording onto the Memory Stick.
To record the videos you may use 8cm DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW.

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.

Can I send data from the Handycam DCR-DVD105 to my macbookpro???


Hi!
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!

Sony dcr-dvd105 Handycam . I want to copy several 30 min. discs onto one or two large discs. Sony has not been very helpful in supporting their product. Hope you can help.


Import your videos from the "finalised" mini disks into Windows Movie Maker on your PC and then export all the content to a DVD on your PC.
Alternatively a disk copy facility such as "Nero" can be used.

Burning video from Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105?


i dont think that you can keep the menus from each mini dvd. but you can create your own dvd video with menu and at the same time you can merge all of your mini dvds. After you upload the mini dvd videos to your computer then use Nero 8 or 9 Software. On Nero look for dvd editable and browse your dvd videos then do as the instructions says to you. you should burn that with one DVD disc with menus of your own choice

Transfering Videos to my computer?


Ok, I'm no expert when it comes to burning DVD media but if you're using Nero you should be able to just drag all the files you copied onto your pc into a Nero window.

Start Nero, open up a burn DVD movie window and drag the files into it. You ought to be able to fit 4 hours onto one disk but check the bar near the bottom to make sure.

As I said, my expertise really lies with hardware and operating systems so if this doesn't work for you post the problem again and somebody will be able to help you further.
