My mission is to edit together a bunch of clips from soccer games. Problem: Video recorded on Sony Handycam DCR-DVD 505(MINI-DVDS) Camera DOES NOT have Firewire port, or RCA plugs Camera only has USB port. I edit with a Macbook that has firewire and USB. So far I have tried: 1. plugging in camera via usb, mac does not recognize at all or react 2. using external dvd drive, put mini dvd in, window comes up asking what to open it with, but when i choose either IDVD or dvd player, does not allow import----MOST NOTABLY disc DOES NOT appear on desktop-not recognizing fully- have received messages that program doesn't support the disc type I need help....is there an affordable $20-40 cable that can go from USB on camera into FIREWIRE port on computer? What other options do I have? ps. i've already looked at older posts regarding this and tried some of the suggestions and they didn't work.
