sup sup, I have been having a lot of trouble with my mini-DVD footage taken with my Sony camcorder. While searching the forums I discovered that I can not edit these in iMovie very easily (too late to get a new camcorder; miniDV seems to be the way to go for editing). I can edit using either DVDxDV or Cinematize to convert my mini-DVDs to DV format, but at the moment I would be satisfied if I could just copy these DVDs as is. I have tried to use Toast's disk copy. I have tried to use Toast and burn the VIDEO_TS file shown with in the disk. I have tried to copy the VIDEO_TS to hard drive. I have tried to rip the disk using Mac the Ripper (2.6.6) to no avail (the program quits before ripping begins; FYI: Mac the Ripper works just fine when backing up my bought DVDs). None of these methods have given me a workable copy. --All mini-DVDs have been finalized and play great in computer or player-- My goal is to just be able to copy the footage and send it to family. I would very much prefer to copy a few 1.2 gig disks to the larger 4.7 disks. Is any of this possible? What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
