Yes. Except for the DZMV730A model. A CD-ROM is packaged with each of the other units. It includes the USB Driver, UDF File System, DVD-RAM Editing and DVD-R Authoring Software.

I have the same camera, and found out that the VRO file is just MPEG2. So copy the VRO file onto your computer from your disc. Once its on your harddrive, you can right click on it and go to properties. Re-name your file from VRO to MPG, making sure that you still have the original VRO file in case you need it for other programs. Once I change it to MPG file name, I can use media player to play it and I have a DVD movie maker where i can edit and record to DVD.

I'm not sure if this relates or not. I have a Sony DVR-10 stand alone DVD recorder and if I'm using DVD+R I have to leave some time for the DVD to be finalize. If I record all the way to end I just made coaster. Now if I use a DVD+RW I don't have to finalize, I can play it in a PC but not a DVD player. So to be safe I now record on DVD+RW and then just copy it to DVD+R or -R on the PC.

Try the usual cure. Connect it with FIREWIRE and test it with WinDV (use google.com to find).

on standard players. The write all the information that a standard player looks for to read the disk. Nothing is lost if you take the DVD out of the recorder without finalizing it. On a PC, you would tell the software to eject the disk. Later model hardware can usually reopen a disk after it has been finalized. Is this a typo? 'I know that the disc cannot be seen in a DVD player after being finalized'. It should read; I know that the disc can be seen in a DVD player after being finalized

My non-authoritive answers are: 1. Can the DVD-R be played on the Camcorder without finalisation? I'll write no. This is based on one comment by an user plus numerous experiments with DVD+R, DVD+R/W and such formats. 2. Does the DVD-RW / DVD-RAM need a finalisation ? Can the DVD-RW / DVD-RAM be played back on the camcorder/DVD Players/Computers without finalisation ? Based on my experiments with DVD recording and the 3 DVD players I have in the lab, the answers are yes and no in that respective order. 3. Can the DVD-RAM be played in the camcorder and output recorded in a standard VCR Casette ? The media played in the camcorder but placing the media in the VCR doesn't work since it's a phyical media issue. 4. Can the DVD-RAM/DVD-RW be played in the camcorder and the output captured in a computer and then burnt back on the DVD-RAM/DVD-RW or Computer CD/VCD ? Sure, but my method skips the play and re-capture. The files on the media are just placed into the DVD creation software and a new DVD is recorded.

USB1.1 port can generally handle transfer speeds approaching 5.5Mbps between PC and DVD Camcorder. Smooth playback of movies requires 5.5Mbps speeds or above. If the PC you are using has some compatibility issues with the USB driver software, the USB port may drop to speeds below 5.5Mbps causing short pauses during video playback. It is recommended to copy the movie file from the DVD Camcorder to the hard disc drive (HDD) on your PC, then playback the movie from the hard drive.

No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive. Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products. HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.
