Dazzle and a DVD ROM


Vulgan

Question

I understand that you can hook a DVD player into the Dazzle and record the DVD's video into your computer. But is there an option to record video from a DVD playing in your DVD ROM?

And if so, is this feature also included in the non Deluxe version?

 

Of course, I'm referring only to un-copywritten DVDs. :)

You can read all about the Dazzle 90, here. It does not come with the non Deluxe version of EMC 9.

OK, that will work. I currently have EMC 7.5 and it doesn't have the option to record video from a DVD in your DVD ROM. And Videowave does not work with VOB files.

 

I think I'll download the free trial of EMC 9 and see what the program has to offer.

Thanks! :)

EMC 7.5 will capture from your DVD drive. If you use Capture program, in 7.5, you should see 2 of the same DVD drive, but you select the one with DVD icon by it. The capture will be an .mpeg file, which you can use in VideoWave.

 

The nice thing about EMC 9, you don't have to go through the capture process. You can bring the .vob files directly into VideoWave.

EMC 7.5 does have the option to capture from DVDs (see attached pic). Videowave will also accept vob files if you first change the vob extension to mpg.

Oh my god...

I can't believe I never knew about that feature! I remember trying it when I first got my DVD recorder but it must have been a copywritted DVD. I just put a non-copywritten DVD in and it worked perfectly! But when I put in a copywritten DVD it did not tell me why it would not copy, just did not give me an option to copy it.

Thank you so much guys!!!! :D

The other option Walt is telling about. Have disc copier rip the DVD to the HD as a folder set. Or copy and paste the video_ts folder to the HD.

 

Navigate to the saved video_ts folder.

Make sure the extensions of known files are shown. In the folder where the vobs are,

under tools, folder options, view (tab), uncheck hide extensions for known file types.

Rename the vobs like below.

They endup looking like this, just use the ( . ) very important.

Now open videowave to the .mpg and add them to the project.

:lol: I can't believe I never knew about this stuff. I used to change the file extentions in Windows 98 but it didn't seem to work with XP. I never knew it was a folders setting.

 

Guys thanks again for your information. I'm still interested in getting version 9 though. But now it looks like I can get rid of a few third party programs. ;)

That's one of the settings I tackle on all my computers.

 

If you don't have the file extensions, someone can email an attachment labeled letter.doc.exe containing a virus, and it looks like letter.doc - I want to know what I'm dealing with.

 

Also, I expect the optical burners to just sit there when I put a disc in. It can be set that way with WinXP; a bit of googling fouond the instructions for Win98 SE; but the Win2K I had to download something from annoyances.org.

 

Why don't I want the "convenience" of autorun? "Here's a CD with 5 Viruses, two worms, and a keystroke-logger - hey, load it quickly, I'm double-parked!" Think about it.
