Different Problem

Question

I have been having the same problems with my Sony DVD camera. I tried using the SDcopy program, which did copy the VOB file to the correct 16:9 aspect MPG file, but now when I try to import the mpg file into Videowave, I get the message "file cannot be edited." I found a similar topic elsewhere in the forum in which the solution was to copy the VOB file onto the hard drive first. I tried that but to no avail. Any other thoughts?

Did you ever get your problem squared away, in a post you made, way back when? You forgot to come back and answer the suggestions/questions made. :blink:

In regard to the old posts, nothing worked (I was using EMC 9 at the time). I finally gave up and scrapped that particular project.

 

I had hoped that the bugs had been worked out when EMC 10 was released, but they weren't. As I mentioned in the last post, the SDcopy program successfully copied the VOB file from disc to MPG in the proper aspect ratio, but now Videowave returns the message that these files cannot be edited.

 

I've worked with EMC7 through 10, and it's always something...

 

Does anyone know how to get around the "file cannot be edited" problem?

Did you finalize the miniDVD, in your video camera? Did you try just copying the files, from the miniDVD, to your computer, then try to bring the files into VideoWave?

 

I am not talking about capturing. I mean just copy the files, like you would copy a file from one folder to another.

Yes, I've tried copying the files directly from the disc onto the hard drive.

 

Right now, the only solution I have that worked is to play the DVD and then re-capture the video using and ADSTech capture device (which isn't supported by EMC10 either, but I get a usable --though lower quality-- file).

What Sony video camera do you have?
