Importing video from a DVD video camera
Use the following procedure to copy video from a DVD video camera.
Note: A DVD video camera appears as a DVD drive in Media Import. The name of the manufacturer of the camera’s DVD drive is displayed in the Device drop-down list. This may be different than the name of the camera’s manufacturer.
To copy video from a DVD video camera:
1 Connect the DVD video camera to your computer.
2 Use the Windows AutoPlay dialog or Roxio Home to open Media Import. From Roxio Home, click the Video - Movies project category, then click Capture Video.
3 Using Media Import’s Device drop-down list, select the camera’s DVD drive.
4 Select the movie titles and chapters to copy. (To select multiple chapters or movies, press and hold Ctrl while clicking the movies or chapters.)
5 In the Capture Settings box, select the output template to use. For advanced options, click Edit.
6 Click Browse to select the folder in which you want to save the video files.
7 In the Rename files text box, enter a name for the movie files.
Media Import uses the text you enter to begin the file name for each generated file. For example, if you enter “WeddingDVD,” the copied files are named “WeddingDVD 00000,” “WeddingDVD 00001” and so on.
8 Click Import Now.
The movie titles are copied to the specified folder on the hard disk.
Tip: To preview a video before importing it, select it in the list and click Play.
