Camcorder dvd-r disc wont copy to hard drive

  1. I'm desperate to find a solution to our problem... I have a sony handycam - I have 3 mini discs of my son's first year. I was hoping for his first bday party to have the 3 discs combined and turned into a movie. The 2 discs copied to my harddrive fine - but the 1 disc wont. I can VIEW all clips from the disc on the computer when the disc in the hardrive - but it won't allow me to save it to my computer so I cannot edit it. It only allowed 3 clips (there are around 6 on the disc) to be copied - and told me there was an error.
    There must be a way to copy the entire disc since I can view the footage from my computer?? Please help. The disc is of my son's birth which is very important to us. Thanks for any suggestions/advice!!

    You may have a format error on the first disc. Go to some place like Wal-Mart and have them transfer the mini disc contents to a standard CD if they can
