I recently purchased a Sony Handycam DVD505 and have been frustrated with the mini-DVDs. My intent was to be able to remove the little mini, place it in my PC tablet or school-teacher dvd burner and edit. The idea was that another high school student in my multimedia class could use the camera with another mini-DVD while we downloaded the first. Neither computer seems to recognize the mini-DVD unless it remains in the camera and is plugged into the computer!
I am using the DVD-RW disks (I don't know the difference between a DVD-RW and a DVD+RW).
As a teacher about to start school and just learning about these camcorders, I sure would appreciate any advice or ideas before school starts in a couple weeks.
Thanks a million!!!
