A Question for the Techies

362 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  susan tuck
Ok, so I may seem just TOTALLY stupid, but here's my problem:
My computer (Compaq Presari SR1950NX w/ Windows Media Center 2005) will not play my mini dvds! It has a dvd drive, and plays regular-sized dvds with no problem, however I consistantly have trouble playing mini dvds from my camcorder! I try to open the drive to see if it even detects the disk, but the drive folder remains blank.
Does anyone know if these small disks can even be played on a computer? Or do I have to purchase a special cord (USB or whatever) to be able to play it? Can I retrieve the files to upload to my computer?
Thanks for any help you can give me!

Here's a pretty good site:

• Panasonic PV-GS19
(*est. $350)
Best budget mini DV camcorder.
This is one of the cheapest miniDV digital camcorders you can buy, and reviewers say the Panasonic outclasses similarly priced camcorders from Sony and JVC. It performs much better in low light than its budget competition. Included are a handful of manual controls. Although reviews say the Panasonic camcorder's menus can be a bit clunky, this is the best cheap digital camcorder you'll find, with better features and performance than its competitors. END QUOTE

Here's another one:
