copy DVD to WMV

Question

I burned a recording then erased the original movie. (first mistake).

 

So I want to export my DVD to a WMV so I can re-burn it and fix it up.

 

How do I do that ?

 

In disc copier I went to video compilation and it lets me selct the movie or certain chapters and I choose to output file/folder and choose name for a .WMV and it runs and says it works but there is no output WMV file.

 

Am I missing something ? is there a better way ?

I don't think the burned DVD had an odd format. I recorded the show from TV using my ATI s/w in 4:3 and burned it to DVD using WinDVD Creator, also in 4:3 as far as I know.

 

I think I finally got it working, I changed the type to burn to as WMV and it let me customize the screen size, instead of taking the default, I changed the screen size to something like 680 by 420 and when that finished and I played it it looked good screen size wise ...

Use Media Import to capture the DVD to a video file.

 

IIRC you can select wmv as the the captured file format. If not, then capture as mpeg and use VideoWave to convert to wmv.

I used media Import, selected 2 of the 3 chapters in my movie, did this twice, once importing to WMV and once importing to MPG, and in both cases it generated files but when played that are real long/tall, not to the same scale it was burned/plays at. Is there some option to fix that ?

I don't know of any simple way to correct that. Does your movie have an odd screen format?

 

I tried importing two videos in different screen formats, a 16:9 (widescreen) and a 4:3 (TV). I played the resulting files using Windows Media Player and both looked fine.
