I have a dvd recorder that records to dvd; I recorded a tv program that I want to convert to mp4. I recorded it to dvd but wehn I put it in my computers optical drive, it only sees it as an audio cd. I put it back in the dvd recorder and pushed play, and it plays beautifully, audio and video. I am not sure where to go from here. I would like to rip it to my hard drive but I am not sure how to do that. I assume it is AVI. I could put it back in the dvd recorder and hook the output to my computer and go the long route from there but I am sure someone knows of a better way. Thanx in advance for all your help AGAIN.
