I don’t know if this is the correct forum, but here goes…
I’m just starting digitial home movies. I can’t rip a large movie file from my dvd RW mini-disc to my hard drive for editing. At about 12% I get the message of an I/O error. I Googled the error message and took the suggested steps without better results. The suggested fixes were (#1)change the IDE properties of the device manager (transfer mode box to PIO only) and (following failure of #1) clean boot.
Because I have two DVD burners it was a little difficult, as there are 3 primary IDE channels, 3 secondary and 3 standard dual channel PCI IDE controllers (whatever those are). I think I tried the first two of primary IDE channels. But I’d be willing to try again, with some direction.
I also tried to rip the DVD with Nero, but got “NeroRecode2 encountered a problem and can’t continue.” I don’t think Nero recognizes the vob files of my camera. Although I think it ripped the small vob files??? The one I can’t work with is like 1 million kb
My questions: why can’t I cut and paste the file from the dvd to a hard drive folder like the camera directions suggest? Why can’t nero handle this? What software would solve my problem? Can you suggest another forum or website to help me.
