I use Final Cut Express to edit video I have shot, export as (un-contained) .mov files and burn to DVD using iDVD. Now I want just one scene from that project but cannot find the FCE files. I have the DVD and .cdr file. Is it possible to somehow copy only part of the DVD?

If you setup chapters when you originally made the dvd (I honestly don't know about iDVDs support of chapters, I use DVD Studio Pro) - then and what you want falls in a given chapter, you can use handbrake to just rip that one chapter.

Failing that, my thought ATM is that you will have to rip the entire video and just select the clip you want in FCE or use a tool like MPegStreamClip to re-transcode into a new file (possibly different codec/container since FCE likes .mov and handbrake likes .mp4 and .mkv) and while doing that just specify the range of video you want for the new file (MPegStreamClip has a very crude selection tool for a single set of in/out points - works perfectly for what you'd want in the long run)

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
