I have no idea what file type. It is a DVD from a camcorder that records to DVD

Stuff the books into The DVD Gets Rid of Nero.,it can't handle hard copy.

when the disc is in the drive right click on it and choose "explore" to see what's in it and drag the files off. nero opens because it's the default program for whatever files are on the disc and it autoplays it. this can all be changed.

Ok dvd in the drive have clicked on computer. Right click ..explore which brings up the files

so there you go then. drag them into your computer. then you need to find an app that can 'edit' them. so what is on the disc?

i meant content type also what model camera is it? surprisingly most of us will google the info you give us. you could try it too.

Sony DCR-DVD608 My better half used to do all this but passed away recently so I've a lot to learn. Google of course,use it with out thinking twice but not on this occasion!

Have you tried opening movie maker then import video from the dvd?

alston, Dec 2, 6:40am
Yes I have. I must be missing something. Have been cruising the microsoft site but that was no help whatsoever. I can't use the camera to directly down load it because I have no idea where the leads are barring a heap of wires etc in a draw. the camera also needs charging, no obvious charger yet

you need someone in manukau who is 'tech' to lend a hand =)

alston, Dec 2, 6:59am
It's starting to look like it:) I'll work it out somethings just take a little bit longer. It's a little frustrating ,to say the least . Thanks for all your help

you may get a random manukau-ian [?!] in here who may offer.
