Editing out DVDs from off-air recordings (eg: Ads)

Hi all,

I was wondering, I would like to compile all the 'air crash investigation' programs i have dotted about onto one dvd so i can send to a friend who wants to see them, however most of them are a single program that ive started recording then gone to bed, such the rest of the dvd is the programmes i dont want that were on later that night. What i want to do is create a new chapter effectively with just that program on it that i could compile onto another dvd or delete off the unwanted stuff and continue using the disc. Is this possible? Also, can i edit out ads in the same fashion?

Please help

:)

It depends on the features of your recorder. It may be easier to transfer the video to a PC and edit & compile there, but you will obviously need both hardware (DVD writer) and software to do that

Not unless your DVDR (the model no of which you omitted to tell us) has a hard drive.
The only other way is with a PC and editing software.

Good God .. I really do not mean to be rude ... but you are not exactly bending over backwards to help us to help you.

Some precision in your questions will get you much closer to what you want to know.
