I'm just starting digitial home movies and I'm having a heck of a time getting the vid from my SONY DCR DVD92 to the computer hard drive. I can't cut/copy and paste (or drag) a large movie file from the RW mini-disc to the HD for editing. At about 12% I get the message of an I/O error. I Googled the error message and took the suggested steps without better results. The suggested fixes were (#1)change the IDE properties of the device manager (transfer mode box to PIO only) and (following failure of #1) clean boot.
Because I have two DVD burners I just basically guessed which settings to fiddle with, as there are 3 primary IDE channels, 3 secondary and 3 standard dual channel PCI IDE controllers (whatever those are). I think I tried the first two of primary IDE channels. But I'd be willing to try again, with some direction.
I also tried to rip the DVD with Nero, but got "NeroRecode2 encountered a problem and can't continue." I don't think Nero recognizes the vob files of my camera. Although I think it ripped the small vob files??? The one I can't work with is like 1 million kb
My questions: why can't I cut and paste the file from the dvd to a hard drive folder like the camera directions suggest? Why can't nero handle this? What software would solve my problem? Can you suggest another forum or website to help me.
I'm guessing it might be a RAM problem. But I'm no computer expert and I know even less above dvds and home video.
