A friend of mine made a DVD from a video recorder and she used iMovie to make it and the converted it over to Quicktime. It works fine in a Mac computer, however it will not play in a regular DVD player. She already trashed the original material from the video camera. Is there any way to properly convert this DVD she has so she can make copies. It is all her original stuff. No pirating issues.

Thanks
Brad

You can try using DVDBackup to rip the video off the DVD, then reburn it with Toast as a DVD. If in the US, use NTSC. Europe PAL, France SECAM, etc.
Also, make sure you properly set the region codes before burning. I like setting this to 0, which is ALL.
