OK…my most recent attempt at making the jump from the Sony DVD recorder to the Windows PC via LG Combo Drive.
I recorded to DVD-R (instead of DVD+R) on the Sony GX255 DVD recorder. I was surprised to see the Sony forced the disc to be formatted in VR mode. I thought that was reserved for RW’s?
I recorded 6 minutes of a student’s exam from my Panasonic DVC via S-Video with no sound. (I didn’t know S-Video was video only…makes sense I guess)
Anyway, after ‘title-ing’ and finalizing, I take it to the computer and it is recognized as a DVD! However…I don’t know what to do with it.
Upon exploring the disc menu, I see these two files.
VR_MOVIE.VRO 296,812 kb
Am I getting close to having video to import into an editing suite?
