Hello I have a Panasonics VDr-M50 camcorder and have recorded a lot of video onto a Sony DVD-R disk. I have no problem viewing the video (each seperate frame/scene) on the camcoder. However, what I want to do is download all of the SEPERATE scenes onto my computer so that I can edit them. I have tried to do this via the supplied software (DVD-movieAlbum) and also tried to download it in Studio-8. When I hook the camcorder up to the computer via the USB cable it finds it and assigns it a drive letter, however it gives me an error when I try to open that particular drive. I have also tried to "finialize" the disk, which I can do with no problem and watch it in any DVD player. I have also been able to use DVD shrink to copy the entire movie to my hard drive. However, I am still unable to edit the individual scenes. Can someone PLEASE point me in the right direction. Tell me how to d/l the scenes prior to finalizing the disk or how to open individual scenes after finalizing the disk. What do I do? Am I doing something wrong? Am I using the wrong disk? HELP! THANKS!!
