Back in 2003,I had a Verbatim DVD-R Data Storage disk made of all the reels of cinefilm that I found in my late Mums effects. This is the only copy I have of many treasured and personal memories of my childhood,and was converted at great expense.
I don't use Windows Media Player in Vista 32bit and instead have a full version of Winamp, and a free version of RealPlayer SP the latter being just for video downloads.
I want to copy this dvd-r lasting 100 minutes to my hard-drive and import it back to either Winamp or RealPlayer,and then later copy it to backup external hard-drives. The dvd-r plays ok. No matter what way I try to 'rip' this sole dvd-r,I fail.
How DO I rip a dvd-r please? I'm at an absolute loss. Any help,advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your suggestion of Imgburn which did the trick. Although this was successful in 'ripping' the dvdr,it won't play as the format is something called '.BIN'. Several attempts to convert '.BIN' to something else(I assume AVI or FLV?) have proven unsuccessful. I have no idea how to convert this dvdr successfully sadly.I never knew 'ripping' and/or converting a 3.19Gb dvdr from 2003 would be so troublesome! Are you able to help further please?
