I have a Sony Handycam DCR-DVD300 which uses mini DVD-Rs.  When I connect to iMac to try and import video, it seems to only recognize the camcorder as a DVD player.  I am able to play the video, but not import the video.  Is there a way to do this?  I assume I need some type of software to convert the format of the video.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I am using iMovie '11. Thanks.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
