How to extract video/audio data from DVD disk in a Mac

Some months ago I edited a DVD and burnt it on a disk. Now I have to make some changes and I haven´t got the original data, as it´s stored in my other computer and now I´m traveling.
I only have a copy of the disk I burnt, but I cannot work on it as (how stupid of me) I configured permits and share Read only.

DVD Disk Info:
Type: Volumen
Format: (UDF)
Capacity: 1,92 GB
Share and permits: Read only

Is there any quick solution to extract data that can then be imported into any video editing software?
Is there any DVD player like VLC, etc that allows to copy a fragment of the video while it is in reproduction?

There´s probably an easy FREE solution around, but I got stucked and I have to meet a deadline soon.
Thanks for your help

    Thanks for the suggestion, but like I said, I´m looking for a FREE solution.
    The data that the dvd I need to work on belongs to me, so I don´t see the point in buying new software because I´m out of my country now.

    Anyways, I´ve downloaded a free trial from
    and it´s already sorted out

    Cheers, Montse

I have had great success capturing video clips from dvds, websites and more with Snapz Pro X from Ambrosia software... it allows you to size the window, place it on the desktop right over your video and record it as a quicktime. Then you can edit the piece you want.
I highly recommend this 69 buck downloadable program. It will work for stills as well. you can chose to capture with or without sound...

Here is where you can get it from Ambrosia

let me know if you need help with it... it's pretty straight forward...

Disk error 0280

Error 0280 on Hitachi mv350a DVD camera : It looks the dvd had bad spots that could not be read. After getting frustrated trying to get any info from Hitachi manuals and support, I just decided to try to extract the data directly from the dvd(fujitsu dvd-r disk). Since my DVD was not finalized I could not copy the files directly using Windows Explorer, so I tested several applications and here it's what worked for me: I downloaded isobuster (, and I was able to view the tracks on the dvd, then I used the "Extract" option to create an image directly from the faulty dvd and it created a couple of files with the extension .ibq. I checked these ibq files and two of them were huge, so I assumed those were my video data. I renamed these files from *.ibq to *.vob(isobuster has options to extract these "image files", but you need to register it first...), anyways I tried to open these new vob files with PowerDVD and they PLAYED JUST FINE :)! Finally I just used a DVD editor to load the new .vob files and I burnt a new DVD. I hope it will save you guys some time... Mihai from Romania :)

A dvd+r disk I burnt using Nero7 will not play on my dvd player (the extention file of burnt file is .flv

Try converting the file first. Many converters are avaiable online. Assure that it can take FLV (Flash based files) and export as MPEG (or DVD standard) to maximize compatibility.

Found this in a search quickly:
AVS Video Converter is an all-in-one multimedia program for capturing, converting, editing, converting, transferring, burning DVD and movie files. It can convert FLV files to DVD, burn FLV to DVD, as well as convert FLV to all popular video file formats, and even extract MP3/WAV audio from FLV. Supports Youtube, Flash, Google FLV video files.

Good luck
