Transfering dvd ram disc to computer

Hi I have some video on DVD RAM discs (1.4GB) and I'm trying to transfer it to my Macbook computer. I have Final Cut Express and iMovie on the Mac book. The Panasonic VDR-D100 won't let me finalize the RAM disc like it does the DVDRW and I can't find anything in the manual.

Try buying ulead videostudio and it doesnt even need to be finalized.
videostudio was great for me because i could simply put in my disc and then click on import from disc and it would import it onto my computer. hope that helps.

I CAN NOT TRANSFER FROM THE CAM TO COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL AND MY COMPUTER SAYS THAT THE FORMAT ON DVD IS NOT SUPPORTED


Hi,

There are three ways of transferring the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer. One is by using the Picture Motion Browser Software, other by using the A/V, USB cable after finalizing the disc in the Camcorder and finally using the DVD-ROM Drive in the Computer after finalizing the disc. If you're trying to transfer using the 2nd and 3rd option, the the disc in the Camcorder should be finalized.

Also make sure that the disc is formatted in DVD-Video mode instead of DVD-VR mode. VR mode recorded discs can only be played back using a VR Compatible Software/Player or in the same Camcorder. DVD-Video mode recording will help you in playing the discs in all the Players and DVD Viewing Software.

I always recommend transferring the videos to the Computer using the supplied PMB Software.

Please check transferring steps and information from the link given below:

This sounds like your driver is unable to read this format. Check on the web for your driver and get the specifications. It should tell you what it can or cannot do.

Panasonic DMR E55 Won't record AT&T U-Verse programs!


Make sure you only use the correct type of discs: DVD-RAM or DVD-R for recording and DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Video CD, CD-Audio (CD-DA) and CD-R/RW (MP3, CD-DA, Video CD formatted discs) for playback.

DVD-RAM disks are in plentiful supply on eBay, both new and used. Keep an eye open and you should pick them up, new, for less than £1 Sterling each!

I am unclear, though, what you mean about recording to and from the VCR. The DMR-E55 doesn't have a VCR facility, just DVD.

WHAT DVD DISCS WILL PLAY ON THIS DVD PLAYER


Assuming you are not having an actual hardware problem with the DVD player or an incompatible format (e.g. HD video & non-HD player); you should know that when you write video to DVD-R or DVD+R discs, you have to 'finalize' the discs on the creating drive for them to be playable on a regular DVD player. (Note a finalized disc can no longer be written to. If the player can read DVD-Ram (and your creating drive can write to them), DVD-Ram discs do not need to be finalized.)

Can I send data from the Handycam DCR-DVD105 to my macbookpro???


Hi!
Unfortunately, your camera does not have a USB jack, and does not have any way to transfer digital data from the disc to your Macbook.
I'd suggest loading your disc to a computer with a non-slot loading dvd drive, download your footage there, and either burning the data to a regular-sized dvd or putting the data in a flash drive to transfer it to you Macbook.
Hope this helps!

Why doesn't DVD disc play on my computer?


Hello again

I don't know what gear you are using or exactly what you want to do, but I assume you want to put some of your old video vhs tapes or something you have borrowed, on to your computer.

Your DVD/HDD recorder will probably support DVD-R as well as DVD-RAM unless you are very unlucky. If it's a Panasonic it will definitely support DVD-R. DVD-R are reasonably cheap these days so you could use them for recording instead of DVD-RAM, then easily play them on your computer's drive. You would have the added advantage of a back up disc as well. If you want to edit first, use the HDD on the highest quality setting then transfer your edited work to a DVD-R..

Alternatively, you could buy an external dvd drive for your computer that supports -RAM, such as Icy Box or similar. External drives are reasonably priced and if you plan to transfer a lot of video, it would be a worthwhile investment.

Yes, you could probably connect the DVR direct you your computer but you would need an appropriate media card plus suitable software.

Good luck....hope this helps...

Help - Capturing Video from a DVD-R Disc


I took the plunge based on manufacturers marketing claims and sales level tech support - Mistake! Panasonic VDR M50. The DVD-R disks are fairly straightforward. They can be played in my DVD video player and my PC, and I can use Fleximage DVD-to-AVI for conversion to a file format I can use for editing. The camera creates sequencial files for some reason and this software will only convert the first file. Very frustrating! I ended up playing the DVD-R on my DVD video player and using the video cable, transferred the video back to a DVD RAM disk on the camera. See DVD RAM problems below. The software that came with the camera has so far proven worthless. I have struggled with the DVD RAM disks. They are fabulous to use in shooting and editing on the camera but I cannot for the life of me get the DVD format converted off the DVD RAM. They cannot be read by my DVD video player or my DVD drive on my PC. I can see and even transfer the files to the PC through USB but for some reason, the DVD-to-AVI software will not recognize the files that were recorded and I cannot use the file format from the DVD ROM for anything other than viewing the video. Again, the software that came with the camera has so far proven worthless.
