    I know and am familiar with getting a DVD-RAM to a DVD-R on a PC, but on a Mac? Does anyone here know how to do that/ Thanks for the heads up.

    if that's what they are.. you should be able to make an image of it using disk utility then burn to dvdr or you can use toast to do the same.

    you can mount the image.. again.. using toast

    take out whats in it.. and copy it to yoru hard drive...

    depending on what file its in.. go from there.

    now, is that disc encrypted?

    I have used a couple of softwares that do the job (to convert DVD-ram files to mpg2)
    1. Pixe VRF Browser
    2. Mpeg2works4
    3. Toast titanium 7

    You need to have a DVD-RAM writer in your computer to read the files (but you already knew that!)

    So where can I get those apps? But with Toast I can grab the image but how do I convert
    them to get ready to DVD-R> Thanks guys for all your help I really appreciate it.

    www.versiontracker.com
    www.pixela-1.com

    look up for the app name

    On toast 7: 1 open toast, select video, insert your DVD-ram disk, click on media (instead of format), choose DVD. after a while, you will see your titles in the pane. drag one by one to he main pane. record as usual.

    Thanks Peregrina,

    I appreciate the help. But is there anyway you can write up a step by step tutorial? I am lost man. I have downloaded Pixe VRF Browser 2.6.1 and also have Toast 7 but is the other really necesary? Thank again man.

    You may do with 1 app... But, pixe is the fastest to convert DVD-ram files to mpegs; can edit them also. But it is picky sometimes.
    Toast may do the job, but i think it is slower.
    mpeg2works has more options and converters (somwhat like ffmpeg)... consider it as a fine tuner for your mpegs or vobs

    You only needed to scroll upwards...
    But anyway here it is:

    open toast,
    select video,
    insert your DVD-ram disk,
    click on media (instead of format),
    choose DVD. after a while, you will see your titles in the left pane.
    drag one by one to the main pane (right).
    Make an image file of your new DVD
    record your new image (double click it) as usual.
