Dv Content To Data Dvd

Question

I had a commercial company transfer old super 8 film to mini dv. I transferred this footage to my Mac where playback speed is fine. I wished to send unedited content to my brother and used Toast 10 Titanium Pro to create a series of data discs. Two and one half hours of film material occupied 8 dvd discs, which seemed about right. However, when I play content on another Mac, I get a very degraded image that plays back at about half speed.

 

Are there specific settings I should be using. I anticipated one bit of data = 1 bit of data.

Mini DV cassettes?

 

You need to explain in detail with the CORRECT name of the Roxio Suite and applications used to get you where you are?

Found my own answer. On DVD data copy there appear to be files with very similar names. e.g. clip-2008-11-08 10;57;24 and clip-2008-11-08 10;57;24dv. I had been viewing the content without the dv ending. The files without the dv ending are the ones with problems.

Very little of what you are saying makes any sense to anyone used to working in Video… :(

 

In most cases you need a Camcorder with FireWire output to play the cassettes and a Computer with FireWire Capture in order to capture the files.

 

When they are on Tape they are not really ’files’

 

It is only after you capture them to a Computer that a file name is assigned.

 

How are you going to Capture them???

 

We can probably make this real easy if you will answer the questions asked ;)
