    There are one or two things you can try which may work with the editing software you already have.

    Is it possible to select one of the VOB files on the DVD to import into your editing package?

    You could also try copying one of the VOB files to the PC HDD and renaming it with .mpeg or mpg extension.

    If you are able to import pictures but no sound, this is likely to be because the DVD is recorded with AC3 audio.
    Fortunately the E65 can also record LPCM in XP mode and this is much more likely to be recognised.

    One final thought is that if your camcorder has AV inputs you could use it to re-digitise the DVD footage via firewire to the PC.
