.gi File Extension

Question

I had some old super 8 film movies put on a DVD. I copied them to my hard drive with Sonic RecordNowPlus product, which producted the type of file called "Sonic Global Image File", with a .gi extension. I would like to edit them, but the Roxio 8 does not seem to recognize this file?? I've tried Video Wave and My dvd 8. Media import is able to see and play the dvd, but will not let me capture it. providing a "runtime error".

 

On further research; the original dvd contains .VOB, .IFO and .BUP extensions. The meat of the disk is in the .VOB section, but I can't get any part of Roxio to break down the folder into these "sections". In filext.com, .VOB is recognized as a DVD Video Movie File, that contains several streams multoplexed together; MPEG-2, Audio can be several others, although this disc has no audio... (old super 8)...

 

still perplexed...

 

Thanks much!

Questions been asked before. No one here as of now has had a answer. I would go here and read the entire page good info. The gi file extension has some access from IsoBuster 1.9.0.3

program, but the gi file seems proprietary. The program that made it can access it.

1) Copy the contents of the DVD (the video_ts folder) to your hard drive manually

2) You should be able to add the .IFO files in that folder to MyDVD.....
