Seems I've recorded a movie of old stuff from VCR, house burned down, now I need to try and get stuff off a dvd again. Can I do this (conversion from a DVD to AVI file?). Appreciate any help in advanced. Thanks.
The easiest way to do this might be (if you have composite connections to your computer) is to hook your dvd player up to your computer and copy the DVD as a single avi file. It should result in still great quality and you won't have to render it back to avi. If your computer doesn't have composite connections you shoud be able to hook your dvd player up to your camcorder and record it right to tape and then capture the tape into your computer through your firewire port. If you have any questions about what I mean feel free to ask, sometimes I see things so clearly in my head, but don't explain them as clearly as I see them. Good luck!
