I have a Power MAC G5 running OS 10.4.11, (with an internal SONY DVD RW DW-U21A, which I'm assuming is the DVD read/write device).
I have a Cannon DC320 video camera/camcorder that records to mini DVD-RW discs in either the "video" mode or "VR" mode. I prefer to use the VR mode so I can edit scenes directly on the camera, but am willing to use either mode if I can find a way to get the files onto my MAC. I have the option to "finalize" the discs or not in the camera. (It will also record to DVD-R or DVD-R DL discs, but I prefer not to use those.)
I can't read any version (VR or Video mode) of the DVD-RW's on my MAC, the drive just spits them out without even recognizing them.
??? Will Toast 9 allow me to read, copy and edit (mini size disc) DVD-RW files recorded in VR mode or video mode on my MAC???
I'm willing to go through some hoops to make it work!!! Ultimately I would like to be able to post the video files from my MAC to my blog or youTube.
