A Question for the Techies

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!

As long as the subject has been raised, I'm asking my bf for a camcorder for my birthday. I need something easy to use, because I am electronically challenged. I don't want to get a high end one because I'm clumsy & tend to drop things. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks Connie! I want it just for taking moving pictures of Arkane so I can put them on the message board like other people do, but I sure don't want to spend $1,000 on it. That Panasonic PVGS19 might be just right for me. I can see I need to do a lot of research, I don't know a mini dvd (or anything else about them) from a hole in the ground! :roll:
