Well it's a problem with the CD/DVD or perhaps the format itself. You can interrogate the file on the media to see what it is but honestly 3D what the hell is that all about.

You'll be able to watch it but it won't be nice to watch so you need a 3d tv. If you were in London I'd invite you over so as you could see it on my tv. Oh just noticed your second post looks like you're up the proverbial. Maybe a 3d blue ray player is what you need but that again will probably depend on what format it was filmed in

Will not play at all or plays and is unwatchable?
If the former I have no idea, if the latter then glasses. You need the right type. The commonest are Red/Blue and are quite cheap. GoPro 3D videos play fine on my computer but are awful unless you have the glasses.

I can take 3d photos on my Sony A77 haven't tried it on a model shoot. Limited yes but sometimes it can be good.  Gives me a reason for having my Sony Bravia. As Sky have dropped their 3d tv channel and put all content onto demand.  Meaning it now costs to view all 3d content the bastards.  Will be dropping my subscription soon as they've only got sky arts 1 and no 2 which was the better station.

First off, to view/edit it on your PC you need the correct codec and a video editor that supports 3D.

After that you need to export it to a format that's 3D compatible be it a stand along file or 3D BluRay disc.

Then you need not only a TV that supports 3D but also the player (and to some degree the right cables also as 3D can require a much higher bandwidth than standard signals thus better cables are needed).

You can put it on a memory stick and put that via the usb on the tv.  I'm trying to remember how I did mine, because I have a Sony camera I also have the software so I must have done it using that.   I wouldn't be too concerned about cables.

As long as the cable supports the HDMI v1.4 standard you'll be fine (most modern cables are) but it's likely some people will be using cheap cables from when HDMI first appeared and they may cause problems.
