Hi everyone. I am new here and seeking some help.
I have a JVC Everio GZ-MG37AA 30Gb HDD Camcorder. (video files are .MOD) No problems editing once they are re-named with .Mpeg
Will be going on a month long vacation in September and to alleviate the possibility of using up the HDD before the trip ends I purchased a JVC Everio Share Station CU-VD3 with a view to burning video files to DVD every few days.
Problem is the share station only burns a full movie of all the files that I wish to copy. When I place the burnt DVD into my PC it's a full movie that auto plays in Windows Media Center.
The burning options I get from the cam are "All", "Event" and "Date"......
So when I explore the disc on my PC after burning by date, all videos within a date become 1 file with the extension .VOB which are not recognised by my video editing software. I use Ulead Video Studio 11. Have also tried them with no luck in Adobe Premiere.
I have also tried renaming the files to .Mpg/Mpeg. And whilst the files then become recognisable they are unuseable as they stutter and dont play properly.
So my questions are this:
1. Is there anything I can do to make these .VOB files editable? and
2. If not is there another storage option for our holiday? Dragging a laptop around is not something we want to do as we have a number of flights with severe luggage limitations.
Hope I have explained this well enough
