    Can I insert mini-dvd's from my Sony Handycam into the slot drive on my iMac OSX?

    No, mini DVDs (8.5cm) are not meant for slot-drives, only for tray loading drives.


    Even though some might get tired of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG]button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at http://mroogle.*************/MRoogleSmall.gif[/CENTER],since that question may have been asked several times?

    Get an external tray loading DVD drive, use a tray loading DVD drive on another computer and transfer via LAN or external HDD or flash memory stick.

    Or if the camera has a USB port use that to read the DVD inside the camera, if that is possible.

    Maybe you can have a look at the manual of the camera?
