Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR82 Camcorder

1 Answer

Mac compatibility Is the Sony Handycam DCR-SR82 compatible with the Mac?  I just bought a Mac and I'm scared that I jumped the gun because now I hear that it is not compatible.  If not, is there any way I can get my vacation videos onto my computer?  I know someone with a Mac who bought the Panasonic 60 gig and he has the same problem.  He can't get his videos onto his computer.  HELP  Thanks! I bought a Sony Handycam DCR-SR82 without realizing it was not compatible with my Mac. The camera is a good one and was fairly expensive. Not sure what to do.

Do you make a firewire compatible with Handycam DCR-DVD105E and a Mac pc? Mac does not support minidiscs. I also have an external minidisc drive which allows me to play the discs on the Mac but I want to...


If you can "play" the minidisc into the Mac, it should be possible to "copy" the files onto the Mac's disk-drive, at maximum-speed, rather than playing them in "real-time" mode.

The Sony MZ-RH1 mini-disk player allows "digital" file-transfer of the contents of minidisks into a computer, through a USB (not Firewire) connection.

HI, The manual for this unit can be downloaded from here.

Look at page 19 and is shows the USB connection on the docking station for the DCR-SR82. There is no connection on the camera itself.

Mac compatibility


It is compatible, but it may cost you 20 more dollars

iMovie does not work with muxed MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips (and that's what you're trying to do)

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=42996

You'll need:
MPEG Streamclip 1.5.1 (free) and the MPEG-2 Playback Component ($20 from Apple).
http://www.alfanet.it/squared5/mpegstreamclip.html
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/mpeg2/

Once you do that, to transfer the data to the iMac:
1- Plug the USB cable, once detected (5s), press HDD on the touch screen panel
2- Go to Finder (on the Mac) then open the videos folder /MP_ROOT/100PNV01/M2U0001.MPG for example
3- Drag the .MPG file to the mac
4- Start Streamclip (see message further up the discussion)
Export using for example .DV format, readable by I-Movie.
5-Import the new file in I-movie
