I have MyDVD9 on a Windows Vista laptop. When I go to Capture Video my DVD player/burner is not listed in the dropdown menu. Any ideas how to get the DVD player to show up in the dropdown menu?
(it works fine on my WinXP desktop but that machine is ancient and can barely run the software).

So, no thoughts? Anyone? I was hoping to hear back from myguggi. Anybody else have this problem? I think it has to do with Windows Vista. Would love to hear some ideas.

Use Windows Explorer to copy the Video_TS folder from the DVD to your hard drive
Launch Videowave, select Add movie/Photo, navigate to the Video_TS folder and select a vob file.

Can you explain what you are trying to do? There is no need to "capture" video from DVDs.

I'm converting some VHS tapes. I burned some VHS tapes to DVD's on a set top DVD recorder and now I want to edit them, cut out the dull moments and combine other highlights from other DVD's. How would you proceed?
And thanks for the quick response!

Edit
I have been doing this on the XP machine with nice results, except for the time it takes on that old machine. I use VideoWave to edit and combine the pieces that I get from the Import Media tool.

That works! (Still wish I knew why the DVD drive doesn't show in the dropdown menu. Little things like that drive me nuts)
Thanks myguggi!

The choice for your DVD drive should be there as long as what's on the disc is a recognized video format.
What you're doing is really Importing instead of Capturing but that's just semantics...lol

I tried this on some video I have on a disc and it worked just fine.
It did take a minute for the disc to get recognized and for it to come up in Media Import but it did.
Try having the disc in the drive before you start the app and see what happens.

Otherwise just go the route that myguggi suggested.Probably easier anyways.
