Sony mini dvd camcorder

Hey I’m new to this and an not sure if this is the right place for this but am at my wits end with this. I ahve a sony mini dvd camcorder and cannot save dvd/rw movies to a regular size dvd disk or any other type of media is there a program other than the one that comes with it to use to copy,edit,save, manipulate, or whatever or am I screwed and stuck with this and the proprietary software that came with it .
