Hello, I recently purchased a mini-dvd camera from panasonic, as well as some dvd-ram dvds from panasonic. I record professional paintball players and make movies. When I put the dvd-rams in my computer, I have no problem changing them from .vro to .mpg, and I can watch the entire video in nero showtime. When I highlight the video, it says the video is only 4:19 (or another short amount of time), when the video is actually 20 minutes long. Each dvd is just over a gigabite, and when I highlight over them, they are still a whole gigabite, so the whole video is still there. When I move the video into an editing program, only 4:19 of the 20 minutes moves into the editor. (the length displayed varies on each dvd.)
I’ve called panasonic and they gave me a run-around for 2 hours, and I’ve been searching this problem for the past 14 hours. I would appreciate any help I can get.
TLDR: I use dvd-ram dvds, when I put them on computer, the computer reads them as shorter than they are. I can watch the whole thing in nero showtime, and they are the size of a full dvd-ram dvd, but read as if only a few minutes have been recorded on the dvd-ram.
Thanks guys and gals
