    I have a Sony handycam mini disc recorder.
    Ihave played the disc through a DVD player/recorder and recorded onto a DVD+R disc.
    I have winows XP, I don't seem to be able to transfer the disc to a file so that I can put it into windows movie maker??
    If you have some tips if you have some ideas could you please keep them very basic and step by step.
    I have some great footage of sailing the coasts of NZ, and would love dedit them.
    Many thanks Rocco

    I also have a Sony Handycam and had problems when trying to transfer my videos from the camcorder to Windows Movie Maker. It wasn't recognising the Handycam. What I did, was to open My Computer and copy them to (in my case) My Videos. Then when I opened WMM, I selected Videos and they showed up. After that I dragged and dropped each one into the box at the bottom, ready to turn them into a movie. I hope this helps.

    Thanks jud72,
    My handy cam can't be plugged into my laptop,only the TV or video recorder.Once I record onto a disc it comes up as a VIDEO TS, which doesn't work with wmm. The mini disc don't seem to let me shift them to wmm also.I seem to remember my computer having a windows program that would allow me to at least store them onto the hard drive and play them???
    Any help would be great
