    Hopefully this query is in the proper forum as it is a bit of a mixed bag! I've been asked by a colleague at work to compile a DVD as a present for her father but I have some doubts as to whether it can be done. The source material comes from the following.....

    • 8mm camcorder tape (this should be no problem as I have the means to capture, edit and burn this).
    • The contents of a DVD disk which has already been made by someone - this is the one which concerns me.

    My friend wants both compiled onto one single DVD but it's the material on the DVD which worries me as I have only ever made 1-to-1 copies from DVD before (using DVD Shrink). Is her request do-able?? If so how do I go about getting both lots of source footage onto a single disk?

    You can rip the files from the DVD & work on them.

    All teh info you need can be found on www.doom9.org OR www.dvdrhelp.com

    There are lots of utilities to choose from & many are freeware I am sure you will be glad to hear.

    Thanks for the info. I already have DVD Decrypter which, apparently, can rip from the DVD to an MPEG file to allow editing so I will have a play around with that.
