Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105 DVD Camcorder
My HandyCam DCR-DVD105 uses 8cm DVDs. I have eight of these DVDs, and they are all rewritable. They each have about 30 minutes of video on them. I want to get these files onto the computer. Then I would like to burn the videos on these eight DVDs onto one or two standars size DVDs.
When I put one of the 8cm DVDs into my computer, after finalizing it, it plays using Windows Media Player. When I open the DVD folder, there are around six files. They are all named either VIDEO_TS or VTS_01_0 or VTS_01_1. Some of them are NeroShowTime.Files7.bup files, some are NeroShowTime.Files7.ifo files, and the rest are VOB files. When I double click on the .bup files, Windows Media Player starts up, but it says the .bup extension is not recognized my Windows Media Player, so it doesn't play. But if I double-click the .ifo or VOB files, then it plays on Windows Media Player. However, if I copy one of the .ifo or VOB files and paste it in a different location, it doesn’t play.
How can I transfer my videos to the computer? Someone told me that I had to rip the files. I don't think I have any programs that can do that for me. The only option I have now is to burn each of he eight mini DVDs onto one standard DVD, but I don't want to do that. I need to get these videos on the computer so that I can delete them from the DVDs and reuse them.
Sounds like you have conflicting file associations, which means that some types of files open in one player and others in another. However, this isn't your main problem.
To play the DVD file on the pc you need to have the .ifo, .vob and the .bup files in the same directory as well as the video_ts files etc. Easiest way to do it is to copy ALL of the files from each disk to a folder on the pc, then you can play them from there and format your disks ready to be re-used.
If you'd like further help with converting the format and sorting out your file associations please post again but the above information should cure your immediate problem.
