Hi all, A while back Gavtech and others kindly advised me on how to convert dvd recordings to cd format. I foolishly imagined I knew enough to understand the basics however! Since my earlier thread, I have filled a dvd-rw with 'radio' series recorded at the lowest resolution on our Sony HXD - in vr mode because this gives a proper file list when viewed on the recorder. Now I come to try the conversion via our XP Pro equipped pc, I find that XP does not see the files if the disc is unfinalised, and if it is finalised it only sees the first clip. This clip does play in our vlc media player, but even that does not see the files that are on the disc. I was foolishly expecting that the list of files on a dvd would appear just as the list of files does on any other storage device, hence had not realised that before I could carry on following the earlier advice given to me, I needed to know how to get off the starting blocks first! No doubt this is a pretty dumb question, but I'd much appreciate an explanation or a pointer towards one. Much obliged, S PS: I notice that there is a file VR_Mangr.IFO as well as the one visible vro. If I open this in notepad I see the list of files is at the bottom of all the code. Presumably XP needs a gizmo to read the IFO file. Also note that Windows 'Media Player' (11) doesn't run the vro file either - presumably lacking the necessary codex.
