    silly dvd handycam

    A mate has a sony handycam that records onto DVD. He's having trouble getting the video off of it onto his computer to upload to the net. There is no firewire plug on it.

    How do we do it?

    According to a Sony rep I spoke to recently, you are supposed to put the DVD in your computer and rip it using a third-party application.

    Which is why I strongly recommend against DVD camcorders .

    Sorry, no. The Sony Guy recommended muvee.com but as far as I can see it doesn't do DVD ripping.

    If you do find anything good I'd love to hear about it.
