Ulead.com has demos that you can try out which can let you use content from said disks. HOWEVER you can't EDIT DVD-R since that's a write once media. I hope you understand that small issue.
I hear Sony Vegas can use said content and they have a demo too. Top notch stuff.
i just recieved a Hitachi BX35A DVD Camcorder for Christmas and I am not quite sure how to use it yet. All I have for DVDs are the JVC 80mm DVD-R discs and I dont know how to use the finalized discs. I would like to be able to upload these DVDs onto my Dell XPS 400 so I can edit them and them copy the new programs to DVDs for the rest of my family. I dont have any idea what kind of software I would need because my camera does not come with any usb connectors or anything I am familiar with. please help...
