I have a Mac ibook and want to convert old movies into ones I can edit on imovie and idvd. I just had all my old home movies converted into dvd (from vhs, and some were originally on old 1950's 8mm camera with no sound). When I try to import them into imovie or idvd the movie files show up in a document form instead of the ntsc format that my computers dvd player says they are in. Also the company who converted my old movies into dvd specifically said they were in ntsc format. iMovie says they accept this format but it won't work for me!
Please help!
Thanks!

How are you getting them of the disc?

You're best 'ripping' them using handbrake and importing the resultant files.
