That's one of the inherent disadvantages of using a direct-to-DVD Camcorder.
2 solutions that immediately come to mind are
1. Export the unedited video from imagemixer or whichever proprietary software you're currently using. This is done in the same manner you'd otherwise output video to digital files. Chances are, it'll be under File>Export. Output the video as a quicktime, MPEG, AVI, WMV, or other widely accessible video file system, and it should be easily opened in other software.
2. Use a DVD ripping program, such as Free DVD ripper from GoBuySoftware (http://www.gobuysoftware.com/Free-DVD-Ripper.html) for PC or Mac the Ripper for OS X (http://www.mactheripper.org/), both free, to export to an exchangeable format.
I hope this does the trick! If not, please let me know what specific gear you're using :)

Get a frame grabber. This device will use the video out cables on the camera to connect the device to a USB port on your computer. You can then off load the video into whatever program you choose to edit your video.

How to transfer video from camcorder to pc bcoz i have image mixer installed it is not happening dcrdvd201 it says usb driver does not support this version window vista home premium what do i do


Hi,
There is no need to hook camcorder with computer through USB, all is required to Finalize recorded DVD in camcorder and put that disc in computer to copy files for further editing etc.
Finalized disc in camcorder will be recognized in any other dvd player or dvd-rom.
Finalize disc option is available in camcorder menu.
Thanks.

Uploading video from Sony Handycam


swanson76,
Usually the memory card is more suited for stills with the camera, some higer capacity cards (SDHC) will hold some limited amount of video. If your software that came with the camera (Sony) will often allow you to import the movie so you can edit it in the program. Which is what you might want to consider giving a try since you can add titles, transitions and even remove scenes (bad shots) and get a more polished look to your movies plus it's fun. Let me know if you would like a recommendation on video editing software.

Editing a film


VOB format is MPEG-2 system stream and Media Player will play it. It may be required Codecs.
Sony DVD Cameras write data in vob format.
I would suggest to download Cole2K media Codec Pack in your PC, its free.

ImageMixer 1.5 for Vista


This took a few minutes to look up becaus this is only supported on Sony's European website.

According to Sony only the USB driver is supported in Vista. None of the other software is compatible.

Here is the bulletin on it:

I don't know how to delete a video clip when my disc has already been finalized. There isn't any 'delete' button that i can find. Please help me!!


If the disk is finalized you cannot delete any clips - hence the term "FINALize"


If it is a DVD-R, try unfinalizing and then deleting the clip.

Transferring video on cassette to Mac OSX


Are you transferring from cassette to memory card and then to Imac? certainly there is software supported by Imac to accomplish this. You can convert your videos to MPEG format using Imagemixer then try uploading with another program. Imac and OSX should have websites that list compatible software.
