Are there any PC programs that can read discs recorded in this format?
Loads - look for programmes that support DVD-RAM (which uses the same file format). The best IMHO is TMPG Enc Author. Available from:
And WinDVD 4 (or greater) will play them back if that's all you want to do.
KevinMc has recorded a few of the latest Simpsons episodes in this format and as I've missed the last couple due to overtime commitments I was going to borrow the disc and stick the episodes I want onto a +RW disc using my NEC 1300A writer. But how do I know if the writer, or my Asus E616 dvd-rom drive, will read the disc to begin with? Can I use dvd decrypter or whatever to rip the video and audio tracks?
My only other option is to go round his house and record them onto my digital camcorder via firewire.
michaelm provided your drive can read DVD-RW disks there will be no problem.
Download the TMPG Enc Author trial that I linked to, insert the disk into the drive, load up TMPG and choose the import DVD-Video option. Follow the onscreen wizard, add any menus you want and export. You can now burn the DVD-Video files onto whatever media you want (DVD+RW/+R/-RW/-R).
Sweet link man. I'll give it a try.
