Taking scenes from DVD discs to compile in a new DVD disc

I want to take "scenes" from old DVD's, group them, and then make a new DVD disc using Windows XP. Cyberlink Producer and Director came with the DVD player which I added to my Dell Dimension 2200. I thought with this stuff I could, as previously able to do with a TV set, and a DVD/VCR record parts of DVD's onto a VCR cassette and not have to keep a bunch of DVD's that only had short bits I wanted. I thought this would be as simple as recording onto a VCR bits from other VCR of DVD onto a VCR cassette, but ...the Cyberlink stuff seems to think one is already a media expert or something. Which I am not. Would I have to copy the whole DVD, then try to snip out the parts I want to combine from the resulting "file" or "folder" or whatever?

    I installed DVDStyler, but it does not tell me where to begin. Do I insert the existing DVD into the player, then copy it or save or something, then go to some sort of editing functions in DVDStyler?

  • Swash May 16, 2008

    I went to dvdshrink, it is not free. I will try to delve through the styler user guide link you included, thanks. But I have the impression that all programs presume any user
    is starting with more knowledge than I have.
    I probably need something like a media "...for Dummies" book. Will keep trying.

  • Swash May 19, 2008

    I just tried again to get dvdshrink, again was guided to paying pages, it was $9.95 or something, then got a message saying I had purchased a total of 50.85 from sometthing called UpClick with charges to appear on CCPAYINFO.COM.
    So, you and they are computer scammers I guess. Neither of addresses are valid.

  • Swash May 20, 2008

    I got response from DVDshrink, and I am straightening out the bill situation. At this point I have Styler but not Shrink on my pc. I apologozize for scammer comment.

    Hello again.

    You are correct, dvdstyler is to add or join the different sections or movie clips, then it is able to burn the joined video segments onto dvd as one clip if you wish.

    As you already have the video on dvd, you first need to "rip" the dvd video to your computer, then in the dvdstyler software open the clips from the location you stored the ripped video clips.

    To rip the existing video footage to your hard disk, you need additional software,i would try dvdshrink which is anothe free application. Use this to backup the video segment(s) you wish, then once that is complete, open dvdstyler and "open" the ripped segments in dvdstyler.

    ps: check the dvdstyler user guide here

    Hope this helps.

Hi Swash,

If i understood right, you want to take parts from some DVD's you have and edite them to paste them all together in a costume DVD?

If this is what you are asking for, why dont you try a video editing softwarem, or simply movie maker (if it is installed on your PC)


If this is not what you mean, please be more specific on what your problem is.

Thank you
Dahaka

    Swash, why dont you use Movie Maker?
    It comes with many windows, (if you dont have it its easy to download).

    It is a program to costumize videos, (cut sections, add others, add efects, ) everything, and since it is a windows program it is 110% easy to use.

Hi, a year back my family went out on a vacation, we recorded on a DVD when i try to watch it it shows that size is 0 remaining is 0 plz help - jerry


Hi jerry,

I think there might be a problem with ur DVD rom, because it might have got scratches on it, i recommend it to wipe the DVD with a soft cloth very smoothly, along the discs rings.. and try again...

If this doesnot solve the problem, there might be a problem with the DVD Drive u r using, the lens might be a problem, try this use lens cleaner and clean the lens of the disc try to change the dvd drive.. and try again..

Not write file on cd or dvd disc


First make sure your dvd drive is also a dvd burner, if it is not a burner then you can not write files to disks and will have to buy a new one

If that is not the problem, you have to make sure that you're using a dvd-rw (if the disc has info on it) or a dvd-r that has nothing on it. If you are not using one of those then the process will not work

New DVD shows free space as 0 in my DVD drive.Although it allows me to copy on it.


Use DVD burning software like Nero or Roxio to check if DVD disc is empty as windows may not recognize the empty space of disc, if issue persists - update the firmware of the DVD drive, you need to contact drive manufacturer to obtain the updated firmware.

Drive can not read CDs..read Dvds


I suppose that you have windows XP. Pls follow these steps Clean the disc - Clean the disc with a disc cleaning kit or by gently wiping the silver side of the disc from the center outward with a dry, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth. Check the disc for damage - Remove the disc from the drive, and then examine the disc for scratches or cracks. Try a different disc drive - If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer. Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive -Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive.
  • A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive.
  • A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs.
  • A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front.
Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers - If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.comRegards

Dvd-rom trouble


Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs, which would be weird. Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention. To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance. Good luck mate !

NEC DVD-RW 16x DL


If you switched to a different brand of DVD's try using the brand you used before. DVD burners are tested with certain brands of DVD's and sometimes the brands that aren't on that list don't work.
