I'll start by saying that I am completely new to this and don't have much of an idea so it seems!
I have a basic Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205, I doesn't have any output for direct connection to a PC, but I thought that I could just place the mini DVD into my laptop and edit it using Windows Movie Maker.
I seem to always get an error message saying that I don't have the right codec for the file I'm trying to import (if it's the right file in the first place?).
Can I do the editing this way or should I be looking to buy some editing software to enable me to import the DVD movie into my PC via the disc itself?
Which one, if any would let me edit this way?
Sorry for the basic questions but I am a complete numpty at this and need some help
Thanks in advance
Just realised.... I've posted this in the wrong place :-(
