Can't get my video files from disc to edit them

by Snave1991 / March 16, 2014 12:15 AM PDT

During college and university I always burned my final pieces: films, documentaries, etc to disc. I would now like to create a showreel of my work but I can't pull the videos from the discs to allow me to edit them.

I was wondering if anyone possibly had any advice they could offer, or a program I should be using?

Thank you

Try to Convert the videos and then edit

The reason you can not pull the videos is it's not supported by your video editing software, maybe you need to convert them and edit later.
