    :mad:Sorry, this is not a "here's how to...!" It's a "how do I do it?" question. I have a Samsung external drive from which I can play and view these small discs that are not compatable with iMac. I need to upload from these discs to a New Project or a New Event in iMovie. I cannot figure a way to upload for editing and produce a finished movie. My iMac forced me to get a Canon HF-R100 camcorder with an SD card for the iMac SD slot.

    If you can view them on your Mac from the external drive, can you not drag and drop the files onto the iMac? Or save them from whatever you are using to view them?

    Upload Sony mini discs to iMac

    Thanks. I found that opening iMovie and going to import from camera, it will upload. However, it takes a loooong time for any action at all. I found the answer when I had a few other things to attend to, came back and "posters" had been uploaded. Import from there is a snap!
