    Can anyone offer any advice on how to transfer a 5 minute video clip that is currently on my HS2 hard drive to a MPEG/AVI file on my PC.

    I want to transfer the clip to a DVD-R or to one of the RAM discs so that I can read it from my PC and then email it to a friend.

    Questions that I would like help on are ;

    1. Will a PC read the RAM disc.

    2. Will a PC read a DVD-R and will it need to be finalised first.

    3. How can I then convert it to a MPEG/AVI file.

    My PC has Windows XP Home and also Studio8.

    Thanks in advance of any help received.

    1) A pc will only read a Ram disk if you have a compatiblr drive such as the Toshiba 1612

    2) it will need to be finalised unless you had a DVD-R drive installed

    3) I don't know! Hopefully someone else can answer thig one! Why dont you just send the file from the DVD-Ram disk?

    To convert the dvd vob files to avi you can use software like DVD2AVI. Then if you want to convert the avi to mpg use freeware like tmpgenc.

    www.vcdhelp.com has loads of guides.

    If you do have a DVD-ROM drive that can read DVD-RAMs (such as a Toshiba unit - many of which are supplied as standard from companies like Evesham, Mesh and Time) then you can simple copy the recording to a DVD-RAM disk (using anything EXCEPT High Speed Transfer). Put the disk in your PC, rename the 'VR_MOVIE.VRO' file 'VR_MOVIE.MPG' and use TMPG Encoder to run a simple demux on the file (you need to do this to rid yourself of the container buffer files associated in .VRO files). This will split it into .m2v and .ac3 tracks which then can be multiplexed together in your chosen format (i.e. MPEG1).

    Thanks to everyone who has replied.

    I will check the drive type in my PC and have a go.
