Question

I have successfully copied many old family videos. Hurray! Happy with that. Now I would like to create some gifts for others included in some but not all of certain dvd's. I have not been able to figure out how to cut and paste from the created videos to burn new ones custom made for individual family and friends. Anyone know if this is possible? I am NOT a techy so please be patient! Thanks everyone!

Did you capture the VHS video directly to DVD or did you first capture to your hard drive? That latter is the recommended and better way especially if you want to edit the video since you have always have a copy of your unedited video on your system. You use this video in creating different DVD for different people.

 

If you only have the video from the DVD available then you have to get the video from the DVD to your hard drive before you can edit it. I don't know if VHS2DVD is able to do that.

Thanks for the reply. I have not tried capturing directly to my hard drive. I will give that a go. I have however been able to copy from the dvds I've burned to my hard drive. As I said, I am no techy but it seems to me once they are burned onto the dvd they can't be manipulated even after then copying that content to a hard drive. They seem to be in some sort of roxio shell - again - no techy - lame language I am sure. I hope this makes some sense to you.

Does that DVD contain a Video_TS folder? Does that folder contain a number of files with the extension ifo, bup and vob? If yes then that is standard DVD just like any other commercial DVD. It is not some sort of "Roxio shell" but the standard file structure for video DVD. The actual video is "contained" in the vob files.

 

Which files did you copy to your hard drive? There may be a way to "import" those video files into VHS2DVD so that you can edit them. I do not have that version installed so I am not certain of its capabilities.
