Exclamation Mini Dvd Camcorder Help

My family has had this camcorder for quit some while and I'm trying to find a way to get the video files to the computer, and I've tried everything I could think of. First of all, It is a Sony Handycam which records onto mini dvd-rw disks, and when your done with a disk you finalize it, take it out, and then you can use it as a really dvd or copy it with nero, but I'm trying to find a way to just get the video files on my computer. The manual doesn't say anything about how to get the files on the computer and only tells how you can copy the disk. When I insert the disk on my computer it comes up almost exactly like an actual dvd (with a "video ts" folder, etc.) and yet I still haven't found a way to do this. If anyone could help me with this it's be great, and if you have any other questions just ask.

Thanks,
Brown

EDIT: I'm looking to get it on my computer as a watchable format like avi, etc. (for uploading onto youtube and such).
