I have a Sony Hi-Def camera.
Its supposed to come with Picture Motion Pro or whatever software it is.
I cant seem to find my disk, and I want to put some of my stuff onto the computer.
What programs are out there that will read off the camera's DVD and download onto my computer?

Does the default windows video importer work? The one in Vista is better in leaps and bounds than the importer that comes with Adobe Premiere.

he doesnt have access to the net at the moment, so ill awnswer lol :D

We have tryed all forms of connectivity with it,

What happens is when we finalize the blue ray disc that is in it and then plug it into the camera the computer recognises that it is there but can not read any of the content on the disc.

The only software that can supposedly read it is the software that comes with the camera, which when you really do need it you have to have lost it dont you :D

Any ideas?
