I have had the same exp[erience as you importing into iMovie '09 from my Sony DCR-DVD203. In my import each date was a separate event and so the problem was lessend. I only had to correct date and time data for 2nd and subsequent shoots on each different day. I could read the dates and times in the cam and then manually change them in events to get everything correctly, including order.
As an aside, my import into iMovie '09 seems to only work with finalized DVD-R mini disks. When I shot more on a DVD-RW disc (VR format), even though it was finalized, I can not get it to import, The mini DVD shows up on my desktop, and the contents are: folder: DVD_RTAV
VR_MOVIE.VRO - (This file plays on VLC)
So now I am trying to figure out how to convert so that I can get these into iMovie '09.
