home video to computer


im self taught on computers but have hit a brick wall with this one.
i have a old home VIDEO, a dvd recorder and a computer.
i have managed to put the video onto a dvd and this will play on my computer.
when i open up the file there are 2 folders. video RM size 1.12mb and video TS 4.31G.
when trying to copy the ts file by copy and paste or drag and drop, it aborts part way threw.
i tried running it threw dvd shrink / this program kicks it out part way threw analizing.
vso divex to dvd aborts it.
has anyone any ideas? as this plays no problem i cant see why it doesnt copy onto my computer no problem.
please any ideas will be happy to try.
thanks reply

also if it makes a differance / when the disc has been coppied on the recorder and finalized and put into the computer / the disc reads (in the my computer section)

You may have hit the filesize limitation. Certain file systems have a maximum filesize limit (I think it’s 2 or 4 GB for FAT32 - not sure for NTFS).
Use a DVD ripper instead. I know this seems pretty futile since the DVD’s not encrypted, however rippers let you rip by chapter or cut up into 1 GB segments, which is the feature you need ATM. I’d suggest using smartripper since it’s freeware.

For info about the VIDEO_RM folder, read this

I believe that he’s using Fat32.

As I’ve had files around 10Gb (Gigabytes) and no complaints by the OS (Operating System).

Fat32 usually gives up around 3.5 Gb.

He really needs a format, to keep higher files on the computer.

If he’s on NTFS then get another HD(Hard drive). reply


You don’t need to format. You can just use the convert command. Just open a command prompt window and type
convert c: /fs:ntfs
Then it’ll convert the file system from fat32 to ntfs the next time it reboots. It may take a while on a really large hard drive though.
A couple of warnings: don’t do this if you need fat32 (for example if you dual boot), and it’s not a reversible operation (you can’t get back to fat32 using the convert command). reply

Review by Ken Raven for Rating: This DVD is very helpful and so far the best exencipere with my journey into UNIX.1. It exhibits the whole workflow and explains subjects step by step.2. It is nicely organized and takes you from presumed zero knowledge to quite advanced issues.3. It allows to come back and review so many issues that otherwise would escape your attention.4. It will provide you with an WIDE variety of practical commands for any situation.It is easy to follow and all the information is useful and well explained.I’m waiting eagerly for his another DVD of Security and TCP/IP networking. If you really want to learn UNIX it is the best way to to it, period. reply


The answer is: its a VCD format.
You can use the free pc/mac app called Handbrake, or use a similar app, to convert the DVD to MP4 or desired format.
Be sure to convert all titles (add each to queue), as these disks are usually broken into 2+ sections. In Handbrake, there is a title drop down menu which will show you how many your disk has. Enjoy, and God bless. reply
