    Question DVD Ripping Trouble
    I need to get the video I recorded on my DVD camcorder onto my mac but my mac recognizes the DVD as blank so I can't get the video off the DVD. Is there a better way to get the footage off the DVD or is there a way to make the mac recognize it as a non-blank DVD?

    So your DVD Camcorder records the videos it shoots to a DVD Disc? I wonder if it's a format issue. What brand is this Camcorder? Brand and Model.

    Cool and glad you figured it out. Also thanks for coming back and sharing as it might help someone else later down the line!

    Welcome to Mac Forums by the way.

    Glad you fixed your problem. I had a similar issue with my Sony DVD player recorder when i was copying some old family movie VHS tapes to DVD, finalized the disk but could still not see it on the iMac. Changing to DVD+R allowed me to see the VOB files, convert using DropDV and import into imovie for editing. (i was using DVD-R)
