Hello,
'''BUP''' (Back UP) is the filename extension of some files stored on video DVD on the disc. The BUP files are used in the event that the corresponding IFO file is unreadable, perhaps due to a scratch on the surface of the disc.

Can not get video files from a mini dis dcr dvd 108 handycam when I try to import to my pc it says does not support this dis i was using usb cable to pc with sony's software thanks jim


First make sure to finalize recorded disc in camcorder, finalization option is available in camcorder menu and will be enable by powering camcorder with AC charger/ adapter.
Now you can transfer movie files in computer or put recorded disc in computer dvd rom and copy files.

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:)

I can´t download the files to my computer


Not sure if this helps but; when the camcorder is connected to the computer, press the "burn to disc" button on the docking station.

Transfer from my canon dc210 to my pc


If you can play the DVD disc on your computer you will be able to transfer footage and edit it.

Put the DVD disc into your PC's DVD drive, then

1. Select 'start'
2.
Select 'My Computer'
3.
Find your PC's DVD drive in the display of devices shown, right click on it, then left click on 'Explore' in the drop down list.
4. Copy all the files you see shown with the 'Explore' option to a folder on your hard drive.

You can now use the software you normally use to edit the files you've just transfered to your hard drive.

Transfering Videos to my computer?


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.
