Copying homemade videos

  1. I'm trying to find out how to copy a DVD that was made from a camcorder? I
    can view it on MediaPlayer, but not burn, rip or copy it? Running Windows
    Vista Basic. Is this possible? Thank You, luv

    If you have DVD Authoring software...
    (Nero for example) you should be able
    to copy the DVD.

    The following links are focused on Movie
    Maker but if you are interested in ripping
    the DVD...the info will be useful:

    Movie Maker 2 -
    Importing Video from Discs

    Editing video from a dvd

    Movie Maker 2 -
    Importing MPEG Files

    Converting MPEG-2 files - Part 1
    (for Importing)

    Converting MPEG-2 files - Part II
    (Ripping/Converting DVDs)

    Converting MPEG-2 files - Part III
    (from Recorded TV to Movie Maker)

  3. Mr. Inzer, thank you for your response. Bottom line...I will have to
    purchase another program to work with Windows Vista unless I want to sit at
    my pc all day separating files and changing those last three letters. This
    is way to complicated for me. I will give the Ulead a try though and I
    certainly appreciate your assistance. Warning...Windows Vista sucks. Every
    single time I get ready to do something I have to purchase another program to
    work with Windows Vista. Jeez, should've waited another five years to
    purchase a new pc with Vista. Again, thank you, luv

  4. DVD camcorders can record in VR format, this needs to be finalised before it
    can be copied. Also some copying programmes find they can't copy this type
    of disc properly, and I've found that sometime only a -R disc can be copied
    to a +R disc.
    If you want to copy your discs regularly, or have good compatibility with
    players I'd suggest steering clear of the VR format.

    Can anyone help me with a stupid question? How do you change the duration of
    the clips if they are already on the storyboard/timeline? I know how to
    change the default duration for new clips I put in, but not for the existing
