Hello, I had 6 years of old video tapes of my kids growing up burned to DVDs so that I could transfer them to my Mac and edit them and make a video for upcoming family event. Apparently the DVD is read only! Yuck. Not sure why the drug store would have done that to home movies. So I downloaded mactheripper and then when I started trying to break the read only -- I got vop dummy warnings. I clicked on pad and when I went to imovie -- there was a insert for the video -- but the video was not viewable. So the rip did not work. I am fairly new to the mac world so I would appreciate any suggestions on what I can do here. I was really hoping to make a shorter growing up video of my kids for a future party. Thanks.
