Having captured a short MPEG movie on my camera (4mb memory stick) I attempted to view the movie through Sony's provided PictureGear Lite version 3.2. However, only the still images appear in the view windows and no MPEG movie appeared at all. I'm using the Handycam Serial Port Adaptor (MSAC-SR1) that came with a Sony DCR-TRV10E PAL DV Digital Handycam, that comes equipped with a Memory Stick.
Any clues from anyone??

USB will only download still photos or movie shorts stored on a card. eg memory stick.
If no card is in the camera then no connection.
If you wish to capture movies stored on the tape, you will require a firewire cable to connect.
Use iMovie to capture the footage or another Mac application like Final Cut if availble on your Mac.
Even if the Memory Stick Duo is inserted in the Camera, the images will not be saved in the Memory Stick Duo until the capacity of the Internal Memory is full. To save the images in the Internal Memory to the Memory Stick Duo, select the EXPORT option from the Viewing Menu of the Camera. Touch the MENU icon when viewing images to select the IMPORT option.
There are two option in the Viewing Menu of the Camera (Export and Import). Export option is to save from Internal Memory to Memory Stick and Import is for saving from Memory Stick to the Internal Memory.
This Camera is having 4GB of Internal Memory, hence the images captured will get saved in the Internal Memory first and then to Memory Stick once the Internal Memory is full.
Mmmm, so then maybe Sony Vegas Movie Studio only added .MOV format import capability sometime after your version 8d?
However, although I couldn't easily find a specific import spec list for version 8d, this publisher description states version 8d can "edit video in nearly any format". Given the fact that version 9 does accept .MOV, and .MOV certainly being common standard enough to reasonable be expected to apply as "nearly ANY format", it seems strange that you're unable to open/import it.
== QUESTIONS ==
Are you receiving an error message of any kind upon attempting to import/open the file?
Is .MOV listed in "Sony Vegas Movie Studio"'s open/import "Files of type:" drop-down list?
When analyzed with G-Spot, what video codec info (upper right) is reported on your Nikon output files?
== CONCLUSION ==
If indeed your Sony Vegas Movie Studio cannot import your Nikon produced video, AND you require being able to edit it, your only option is to get another video editor/converter that will.
If you post back describing what your specific objectives are (set-top DVD Player/portable-device playback, clean-up editing, more comprehensive creative editing, etc.), I'd be happy to recommend capable freeware/trialware software choices that will "FixYa" up (pardon the pun).
Thanks in advance for posting back ...

1) Make sure that you're not using more than 4 GB memory stick pro duo with the camera. Then try to remove the memory stick and capture 2 images in the internal memory and turn OFF and turn ON the Camera and check. If the error message comes, its the issue with the Camera itself and requires service after resetting. to reset the Camera, select Initialize under Main Settings 1 menu under Settings. if the issue persists, the camera may require service
If its working fine, transfer all the images to the Computer and format the memory stick. Formatting will delete all the contents. If the issue persists, memory stick should be replaced.
You can use ImageMixer to capture and save the file as an mpeg movie, which then can be copied onto a CD or DVD. Look for the capture option in the software. Also check the preferences (click on the tool icon in the upper right corner, 2nd from the end) to set (or at least know) where the file is being saved. It's possible it was saved (if you used capture) but you may not realize it.
Several of the Sony cameras require a high speed memory stick for 640 x 480 30fps movies.
Here is a clipping from the Sony P150 specifications:
"MPEG VX Fine with Audio (640 x 480 at 30fps),
(MPEG VX Fine requires Memory Stick PRO media)"
