Complete newbie with DVD & video stuff here!
I have a DVDR with about 400M of video converted from old film. The DVD is intended for my Mother but it won't play on their basic video player. I'm looking for a way to transfer the content to CD as there might be a better chance of the player seeing the disk - I have had CDRs with JPGs work in the player before. The DVD has one folder with 2 sets of BUP/IFO/VOB files, one small and one large. I imagine the small one is the intro which is not essential. I don't think quality is an issue as the copied material is very old B&W film from 20/30/40s! I have Nero and access to VideoReDo.
I expect this to be a one-of process so, ideally, it would be good if any additional software needed was shareware or a free trial.
As an alternative, are there any DVDR disks that are closer to the sort of "colour" used in comercial disks that the player might read. The DVD we have is a dark purple colour and I suspect that this is where the problem lies.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers - Andy
