Question

I thought I can take my DVD I made from my Camcorder and somehow save them to MY VIDEOs in my PC. I insert the DVD and I cant capture. What part of Roxio 9 do I use to do that? And since my source is the DVD and not the camera or other sources, I cant seem to get past step 1 to either convert the DVD to make a movie or you tube. So how do I get that DVD to some place I can upload to You tube, for example.

When I suggested that you copy the folders and files to your computer, I meant to copy using Windows, not the EMC 9 program.

 

What you did was the way to make an exact image of the DVD. Remember that for later, you'll end up making an image file (ISO) and burning that ISO file to the final DVDs.

 

As I understand it, you copied some stuff from your video camera to a DVD recorder -- Correct ? You ended up with a DVD. Is that DVD playable in a standard DVD player - not just the Recorder that you made it on.

Did you finalize the disc on that recorder?

 

OK Bill, put the DVD in your computer and explore it with Windows. What kinds of folders and files in those folders do you have on the DVD?

 

 

Told you I was learning... LOL. OK. I put the DVD in the Drive and moved them to MY Videos in MY documents. one file Video RM was small while the other was Video Ts and 2.8 GB in size. Thats all I got now. Now how do I turn that into a youtube type video or one I can put on a website. This is only 7 minutes in length so not sure why it is 2.8 GB of of 4.7 GB allowed on the DVD.

 

Do I video edit in EMC9? Hey thanks for this help. If I can figure out how to proceed from the DVD I have it made. One a side issue, how in the world do I save my DVD family videos when they are so large. I was going to put them on a 500 Maxtor Hard Drive. But getting me through the DVD to video would be great.

Don't capture, simply copy the contents of the miniDVD to your hard drive folder. Look for the VOB files and add them to VideoWave. Once they are in VideoWave and you have done all your editing, use the icon above the preview screen to output the project to the correct format for uploading.

 

VOB files are just mpg2 files with another name so you should not have any problems with that. You may have to finalize the disc in your camera for this to work. If you can't find the VOB files, post back with the file format you do see. (for instance if you burned in VR mode you might see UFO and BRO files.)

OK I dont think I understood.. I hit COPY in the Roxio creator DRE in Roxio 9. Then COPY GUIDE... then Save Image to Hard Drive since that was the only one I saw that went to my PC... I ran the DVD as shown and it ended up in MY DOCUMENTS but when i click those it goes back to BURN Images to DISC.

 

I did it wrong. All I want is to take the DVD (not from my camera but I copied some Camcorder family video stuff from a DVD Recorder.). and get it to the Hard Drive. I didnt see any VOB.

Open the video folder (not file) and you should see individual VOB files. Add those VOB files to Video Wave by either dragging them to the storyline or adding them. Once they are in the correct order (it is easier to rearrange them in story line) switch to timeline and do any editing. Output from there.

 

Read this and watch the videos. Print it off so you can refer to it as you go along.

 

Bill, video editing is not something you can learn by doing step 1 then going to the book then doing step 2. You must get an overall understanding of files, folders, formats etc. Perhaps there are classes in your area that might help; it seems like even a basic Windows or Vista course will help.

 

In video editing, the size of the files doesn't count - only the length of the video. You can put one hour of video on a standard DVD blank at best quality; a little less than 2 hours at reduced quality. You can double that with DL discs if you have a burner that will do DL. Personally having a lot of discs doesn't bother me but I'd hate to lose 4 hours of family memory if one goes bad. I always do one hour or less on a DVD and make two copies and store them in different places. The memories preserved on the DVDs are worth spending more time and money to preserve.

 

The external hard drive to archive the ISO files is a great way to keep a copy of the disc and make additional ones if you are asked or needed. In the source I gave you, you'll read about ISO files.

 

DVDs are a great way to share the home videos and to keep them for future generations.

 

If you are stuck, perhaps pm messages to me will keep this basics discussion to a reasonable level on the forums. Also if you run into trouble, make some screen captures of error messages, directions you don't understand etc. and post them to something like Snapfish where I can see them
