Hi. I've recently put a 20 year old vcr recording of a karaoke performance onto dvd using a vcr and my Philips home dvd recorder with good result and no playback problems. Now I've tried putting them onto my mac (to youtube!) and my mac just reads a blank disc. Any idea where I've gone wrong? I dont actually use dvds much so all this is fairly new to me.
QUOTE Thanks

In your spec under your avatar, it state you have a powerbook. Do you have the problem on it also.

Perhaps the format of the content that's on the disk is wrong. Any more information on that?

Did you finalize the recording on your DVD Recorder. If you didn't, check the manual for the dvd recorder and do that. If a disc isn't finalized, it will appear as a blank disc on your mac. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies. I finally found my Philips instruction manual, finalized the dvd (did I tell you I was new to this dvd recording?) and after a couple of goes got it to play on my iBook

So how do I now get it from disc to hard drive so I can have a go at my first YouTube-ing? There is 6 different titles and I just want to use a couple. Can I import them individually or the whole disc. How do I import them?

iBook g4 running OS-X 10.4.11 with iMovie, idvd and div-x.
QUOTE Thanks
