Question about Importing Video from a DVD


Guest RCD74

Question

Guest RCD74

Hi - I recently took video clips from old movies of my family and transferred them onto a DVD using a VHS/DVD recorder. I want to now take this DVD that has about 61 chapters on it of clips ranging from 25 seconds up to 4 minutes long and import them onto my computer to then edit in videowave. I know this sounds crazy but my computer doesn't have firewire. Anyhow, when I put the DVD into the computer, it shows all my chapters except they are not in order of how I recorded them, but rather in order of longest clip to shortest clip. How can I rearrange them into the order they are in on the actual DVD? There will be no way for me to find the clips I want if they aren't in the order I intended them to be in. Thanks in advance, as always.

What format is the VHS/DVD recorder, recording to the DVD?

 

What type or media are you recording to, - + R/RW"

 

Might help if you give the make and model # of the VHS/DVD recorder.

I kinda realized later that I didn't give much information. I guess it is recording in MPEG format (at least that is what it says on the computer and that is how it is imported) and I am using a DVD-R. I have actually solved my problem by going through each chapter and figuring out what family event it was. I am just wondering for future use if there is a way to organize the chapters the way they are on the DVD. For some reason, EMC9 puts them in order of longest video clip to shortest on the screen where you can choose what to import off the DVD. I hope I am making sense. Thanks anyway!!

Sorry, I have never worked with EMC 9 and a VHS/DVD recorder, dealing with 61 chapters on it of clips! Especially in a format described only as "MPEG format". Are there ifo, bup, and vob files on this DVD?

 

Again, it might help if you give the make and model # of the VHS/DVD recorder.

What are the file names like on the DVD your recorder created? Are they related to the length of the clip? If so, then what you're probably seeing is an "alphabetical" listing which is a Windows thing, not a Roxio thing. Give us some examples of the file/clip names so we can see them.

 

The DVD has a menu and then chapters. Each chapter is a different clip (which is how I intended it to be organized) The chapters are just named 1,2,3 etc. up to 64. This is the order I wanted them in since I purposely put them in chronological order to make life easier for me. So much for that idea!! I think/hope that answers your question!!

It is a Panasonic VHS/DVD Recorder Combo. Here it is!! It can copy VHS tapes directly onto DVDs and vice versa. I just took the DVD of my video clips that I had transferred and downloaded them on my computer using Roxio Importing (put the DVD in drive E and imported regular video).

 

I have gone through all the clips and organizing them, however, it is taking me 2x as long as I thought it would. I am just wondering for future projects, if it will always organize my videos in length order rather than how they are organized on the DVD.
