The solution Sony provides in North America is geared strictly towards PC's. The supplied serial port adapter and software do not function with Macs. However, if you peruse through Sony's Japanese web site, you'll notice specific references to a Mac accessory kit. I'm trying to get some info on this kit. In the meantime, here's my solution. I've purchased the Memory Stick to PC Card adapter kit. It turns the memory stick into a PC Card. I've also ordered a USB-based PC Card reader. These two items should allow me to transfer images quite rapidly (11-12 Mbps) to my G3. Only one question. I'm still going to need some software ( I think ) to actually transfer the images from the memory stick/PC Card to the G3.

I don't think as yet that it is possible to hook up a DSC-F55 via a serial cable to a Mac. And that's a f#$%^ SHAME! So now i'm waiting for a coolpix 950, and there's a long waiting list. The only solution on offer here now (that's Europe i guess) is a pc-card reader for memory sticks, but it restricts you to a powerbook. Boooooh!!! I guess Sony and Apple aren't friends anymore. If anyone disagrees i'd like to know.

Sony DCR-DVD108 DVD Handycam Camcorder unable to install software


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 esupport.sony.com) , 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.

USB Cable


Hold the camera as if you were taking a picture. Turn it to the left so the skinny side is towards you. At the top, the is a small place that says, "DC IN." Use your finger to pull down at the top of this area. That's it.

ACDSEE with F55 ??


Unfortunately you can't use ACDSee to access your images on the F55. Not unless Sony comes up with a twain driver which seems unlikely. I have to use Picture gear to access the images and transfer them to my PC which I then use ACDSee to view. I also got a floppy adapter.

DSC-F55 serial connection a disadvantage?


It would take atleast 4 times longer compared to USB. (maybe looking at upwards of 10X slower) I've got the F55 and suggest buying the floppy disk adapter, its only $60 or so and will speed up the xfer considerably. I would say 4times faster.
