  • Summary: I ordered this from amazon. Got it quick. Had problems from the begining. Turns out there was a issue with the cd drive and it destroyed several mini-dvd-r's. Sony support was horrible, non english speaking people, went thru there troubleshooting steps with them on the phone and ate a few more dvd-r's to conclude the camera was broke which I already new.

DANGER! PICTURE PACKAGE!

Charles Memminger, Amazon
16 September 2006
  • Summary: Neither Sony nor Pixela, the makers of the Picture Package software that comes with some Sony camcorders with mini-disks tells you that the software IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS XP, SERVICE PACK 2! It will crash your computer or not work properly. DO NOT install the Picture Package software if you have run Windows XP. If you have a DVD player on your computer, you can download the photos from the mini-disk without this dangerous software.
