I have just bought a video and DVD recorder to try to put all my videos on disc as I am afraid of losing my old footage through old age. I wanted to put them on disc and then put on my MAC so that I can edit them on IMovie. My problem is that the videos I have managed to put on disc open with DVD player but not with any other application such as quicktime or IMovies. I can watch my disc but not download it onto the Mac for editing. When I try to open the files I am informed that the file is not a movie file. does anyone know how I can download these files and edit them?
